My thoughts on Global Warming

I do believe in the theory of global warming. The Earth is warming up and we are not doing anything about it.  Glaciers are melting significantly this century. Montana's Glacier National Park used to have 150 glaciers in 1910 and now there are only 27.  

Here is a picture of a before and after picture from 1940 and 2006. 

It's sad to see the Earth changing like this but we can help prevent it from getting worse.mj

4 Ways to Keep Your Phone Charged in an Outage

  • Battery Chargers: "Juice Packs" are bought for $100 or less for smartphones. They are protective cases that charge your phones.
  • Power Inverter: the inverter is used to convert DC power from your car battery into things that usually are plugged into an outlet
  • Laptop: charge your laptop in advance before any storm or outage and then you can use your laptop as a backup generator to charge your phone
  • Stop running apps: using apps drains your battery. Also it's helpful to turn off your Wi-Fi because it will help save your battery a lot. It is suggested to text instead of calling because it saves more of the phones battery.
