Something Simple—– Driving Down the Highway—-
I was driving down Texas Highway 59 this week and came up on a new guardrail system being installed. I drove a little further into the next county and came up another guardrail system.
They look the same.
– Very simple construction.
One: Used wooden posts The Other: Used steel posts
Each wooden post removes 26 lbs of green house gases from our environment. Each steal post adds 34 lbs of green house gases to our environment. The State of Texas uses over 300,000 of these posts each year.
We can either remove 7,800,000 lbs of green house gases each year from our atmosphere
We can add 10,200,000 lbs of green house gases each year to our atmosphere—– SIMPLE!
