Little Foot

Happy Earth Day!

I went to the Carbon Footprint Calculator and was a little disappointed in the results. My footprint is only 6.561 tonnes per year (it's a British site). That's somewhat above the worldwide average of 4 tonnes, but lower than the 11-tonne average in industrial nations and well below the average of 20.4 tonnes in the United States.

I'm just going to have to do more -- drive longer distances for lunch, leave more lights on in the house for longer periods (especially before I have to switch to CFLs), really crank that air-conditioning up, do smaller and therefore more loads of laundry.

I know I'm only one person, but I'll do my share.

And to think that ALL the "cost-cutting" and efficient fixtures/appliances/devices we place in our lives will soon be eaten away with the RISING COSTS of everything else...

At least there is parity.
