The Lawnmower

The Lawnmower by Rabbi Michael M. Cohen written for Vermont Public Radio October 2, 2012

But I can't feel smug about using my battery powered lawnmower, because I know I'm also polluting the earth. It takes roughly 10 cents of electricity to recharge the battery which helps to reduce my carbon footprint, thereby reducing one of the main sources of climate change. But the sources of that electricity are a combination of nuclear, wood, hydro, and wind. And those non gasoline sources of electricity all have their own impact on the environment.
