Kenny Luna left comments yesterday, and I went to his “Mr. Luna’s Bright Idea” blog and immediately wanted to help him get the word out. Kenny’s an 8th-grade science teacher who’s on a mission: he wants to get Oprah Winfrey to help him give one compact fluorescent light bulb to every child in America. According to Kenny, this step would “help fight global warming by reducing our carbon emissions from electric power plants, save Americans AT LEAST $2.3 BILLION in electricity costs, and help put America on the path to environmental sustainability.” You can help by emailing Oprah and telling her you’d love to see this on her show. Thanks for doing this, Kenny! I’ll get my email out this week.
