Cow Power

PG&E has partnered with California dairies to make enough renewable energy over the next five years to power 150,000 homes. And since we have more cows than any other state, there's a world of good that can be done right here in Central California. Manure naturally releases methane gas into the atmosphere. When released, methane gas is over 20 times more harmful to the environment than carbon dioxide. Which means that even if we didn't turn methane into clean energy, it would still be in our best interest to keep it from being released into the atmosphere.

So how does it work? The manure is flushed into a tank or a tented lagoon, where the manure decomposes and the methane gas bubbles off, before being captured under the cover. The gas is then pumped from the digester, then purified and compressed into PG&E's gas pipelines. After purification, the methane gas is the same as traditional natural gas, except that it's renewable and cleaner. PG&E then burns the gas to create power for our customers.

We're looking for more dairy farms and spreading the word as much as possible. Because the more methane we keep out of the air, the better off we'll all be.

Consumption of Toxins and Chemicals in Everyday Life

Think about the average, toxic-laden day of an average Urban Human...

You wake up at 7 a.m. and brush your teeth with fluoride (toxic) toothpaste using chlorinated (toxic) water.
Then you step into the shower and breathe in chlorine vapors (toxic).
You come out of the shower and put on underarm deodorant with aluminum (toxic) and a host of other poisonous, cancer-causing chemicals.
If you’re female you apply your makeup, which is full of cancerous chemicals.
If you’re wearing a brand new shirt, you’re exposing yourself to formaldehyde.
Next you go down to breakfast and have coffee with DDT (toxin) and many other pesticide and synthetic (toxic) residues. If it’s decaf, it’s made with hexane (toxic) to separate the caf from the coff.
Later that day you head out for lunch and have a diet coke full of toxic artificial sweeteners and a turkey sandwich with antibiotics and steroids that had been injected into the animal.
When you drive home in your car, you breathe in traffic fumes and dioxin and mercury from a nearby incinerator.
If you happen to get a cavity from the toxic sugar in your diet and have to see the dentist, the toxic load continues to pile up. “Dental amalgams, known as silver fillings, are composed of roughly 50 percent mercury. Studies of people with mercury-containing dental fillings show a correlation between the number and size of the fillings and the amount of mercury excreted in their urine. The relationship suggests that the mercury is derived from mercury vapor released from the fillings. Some evidence shows that the level of mercury in the brain tissue of fetuses, newborns, and young children is also directly proportional to the number of surfaces of amalgam fillings the mother has.” (DISCOVER Vol. 26 No. 03, March 2005, Biology & Medicine)

What are you going to do about it?
Keep walking the same path and using the same products?
Start to make some changes today.
Stick with us here and tell your friends.
The more we talk about these toxins in our environment, the more people will begin to get the message and look at how their consumer choices are affecting our health and our environment's health.
