Green Products : The Sequel

The Only Thing Green is the Color

If you missed my other hub, Green Products Are Making Me Sick, you should check it out so you know what is going on. I finally conducted my experiment. I sprayed the "green product" on the mimosa tree at the corner of my house. It has been about four days now, and I can say I am not surprised at the results. I will, of course, keep everyone posted with another hub, should anything change.

After four days, the mimosa branches that were sprouting up, are turning brown and withering up. Now, these branches are either dying a slow death or they are metamorphosing into something different. There is no telling what this "green product" is doing. Hopefully, it is the latter. I am almost scared to go outside and check the results for fear these branches are mutating into some super plant. This may be my last hub should this thing take over and devour my house. If you don't hear from me again, you know the deal!

I also killed a bed of ants with this stuff. Worried about the mutated plant that could have been a result, I was apprehensive, of course, of spraying the ants. I can imagine a six-foot ant coming to the door, saying his car was broke down and needed my phone. I have awakened out of bed the last few nights, in a sweat, from this recurring nightmare. The environmental friendly spray seems to have done the trick though. In a few days I may overcome my fears and decide this spray is some really good stuff!

I still struggle with the notion of killing plants in order to make an environmentally safe product. I don't know, seems counter-productive to me. But then again, I am not the scientific genius that Al Gore is. I still only have my fifth-grade science knowledge to fall back on. Who knows? I may be simplistic and ignorant to believe that CO2 is vital to the production of oxygen and a vital part of photosynthesis. But what do I know? I have never served in the Senate, as a Vice-President, or made a movie, so my scientific credentials are lacking. Of course I haven't written any books that sound like the Unibomber's writings either.

My policy is if you can't drink it, it probably ain't user friendly or environmentally friendly. Let us know the final results with your tree. I have some real death defying trees here I would like to get rid of.

Hey, I'm not sure about Green Products (other than cash), but my wife and I've sure 'nuff discovered global warming. Just the two of us TALKING (Honestly! Talking only!) in her bedroom...produces a temperature rise in the room of at least one degree, sometimes two.

Okay, so it's not quite global, but ya gotta start somewhere.

As for Ted K. (Unabomber), it's always seemed a shame that I missed him...since he was holed up for all those years in a spot no more than 60 miles from my Montana upbringing....

I just came from your 1st hub about green products, and was not disappointed. Funny, and so true. Oxygen? We don't need no stinking oxygen.
