I mentioned this is the first thread, but it's worth repeating - there's a good book on global warming and the evidence that human activity is accelerating it beyond the natural climate cycles, it's called The Weathermakers
. It's academic, logical and scientific enough that highly educated skeptics can't really poke holes in it, if they're being intellectually honest (IMO). Maybe you could get your husband to read it. It's also available on CD unabridged. And a good website on this topic for those same skeptics is http://www.realclimate.org/
("climate science from climate scientists", and beware there is some sarcasm and tongue-in-cheek stuff). TBH, the Al Gore version of climate science comes across to skeptics and many who are uncertain as extremist and the-sky-is-falling, making it easy to dismiss.

Did I reply? I don't remember. I would have if I'd seen it. We run on biodiesel, wih the intention of switching to WVO when the warranty is expired on our vehicle. I fantasize about growing our own oil!
Have you all seen http://www.themeatrix.com/
? It's about factory farming of animals, and has info about alternatives. (I'm not veg, but try not to support the CAFO system in any way.)
