      President elect Obama says he wants to make clean energy a priority
      for his administration. But the U.S. needs to eliminate wasteful use
      of energy now.

      One way for some to eliminate wasteful use of energy now is to take
      fewer trips away from home. For example, some may see and appreciate
      wildlife in their own neighborhoods or backyards rather than going out of town
      to experience nature.

      Much time has already been wasted. A 2003 press release states:
      "We are already witness to conclusive evidence
      that human activities have caused rapid increases
      in temperatures in the United States and the world."

      * Oct. 30, 2003 Newswire press release: "Rapid Global Warming
      is Happening Now", Senior Hydrologist, National Weather Service,
      Chanhassen, MN office. Full text at:

      NWS Chanhassen office should

      NWS Chanhassen office should say what NWS is doing now about climate
      change education.

      Another way to encourage people to make fewer trips away from town is
      to great libraries, staff and hours.
