""Far wiser would be for us just to cut down on our flying, which not only emits significant greenhouse gasses but deposits that carbon far nearer to where it will form a heat retaining barrier than does ground uses of fossil fuels."
I wonder if Al Gore will read this column? Probablty not. I doubt the Jet he's flying in or the limo he's being driven in have the Eagle.
"Swearing off meat and dairy is a recurrent idea on the lists, due to the amount of water consumed in raising livestock ( and in raising food for livestock) and because livestock intestinal gasses ( all right, farts) are actually a more potent greenhouse contributor than the burning of fossil fuels."
I wonder if the Lord Obama and his wife think about this when they're throwing all those excessively lavish parties complete with Kobe beef and all sorts of other "Non green" goodies. Of course we never hear a word about this from the tree hugging crowd.
"Furthermore carbon- absorbing trees are cut to provide pasture for the animals."
Plants feed off carbon and humans give off carbon with every breath yet we are to believe carbon is going to lead to the end of civilization. Maybe the writer of this column can explain how the earth's temperature has actually cooled over the past decade yet we are to believe we're in the midst of man-made global warming.

If we really wanted to turn life over to nature we'd kill ourselves to reduce our carbon footprint. Although the owl would still eat the mouse and the lion would eat the gazelle.
That's what it looks like from Pittsfield.

My goal in life is to have a carbon footprint 1/100 as large as Al Gore's, because then me and my family will be living large indeed.
I enjoy having the "green" movement around; it is a great way to quickly identify those people who are not intelligent or totally gullible or both.
Time to get in the Hummer and go out and grab some cheeseburgers for the family.
