Opening Arguments

A gas, gas, gas

I am more than happy to do my small part:

Men are worse for the environment than women, spending more on petrol and eating more meat, both of which create greenhouse gas emissions. These are the conclusions of a new report by the Swedish Foreign Ministry.

"Three out of four cars in Sweden are today driven by men. Around ten percent of all drivers, mainly main, account for 60 percent of car journeys," report author Gerd Johnsson-Latham told Svenska Dagbladet.

I have in my freezer the last of the strip steaks from Omaha Steaks that my brother and his wife sent me for my birthday. I shall have it tonight, perhaps with beans so as to increase the chances of a good gas contribution. If it's especially cold this February, you will wish there were more like me. (Look, I know they're talking about the greenhouse gasses involved in the production of red meat. Don't be dim. More than half of humor depends on deliberate misinterpretation.)

"More than half of humor depends on deliberate misinterpretation."

And 100 percent of punditry.

Beans and steak...a "gas" contribution?

Better have Environmangelist Gore check your "carbon credits" first!
