As I just finished up some research on textile/clothing dyes, and chemicals found in cosmetics, I wonder how I do not become paranoid. I mean as I start to learn about all these synthetic chemicals we all are exposed to on a daily basis, how do I stop myself from wanting to throw everything I have out and start over? From my non-stick cooking pans to my favorite yellow and gray shirt, there are chemicals wearing off and rubbing off on me constantly.

That’s why we need to make ourselves more secure and control our energy future by harnessing all of the resources that we have available and embracing a diverse energy portfolio.
