This is not a joke. There is now a low carbon diet and food calculator to help you lower greenhouse gases from your food.

I think most of my food is fairly local. I don't buy much imported stuff because it's too expensive.

I had Sausage and Lentil Soup for lunch yesterday. It caused something else.

I am not worried.... I found an article on it and thought it was bizzare... :)

One of my pugs... Pork Chop (I did not name him that) get's such bad gas when he something that doesn't agree with him, the noise and the smell scare him. It's funny. ;)

Can't hear you, Joyce! I've got my head down here in the sand where there are no silly problems with lunches and globes.

There are already consultants who will come to your home or company to assess your carbon foot print.

In ten years someone's going to think of some other measuring stick and we'll have to go through this all over again.

No matter what we eat, cellular metabolism will have as its end products, water and carbon dioxide. And that CO2 is a waste product that will be blown off to the atmosphere when we exhale. The best dietary solution is thus to just stop breathing. It'll help solve food shortage problems as well.

The best dietary solution is thus to just stop breathing.And that's why we need to observe Air Hour, just like last month's Earth Hour.

Celebrities and politicians should set an example for the rest of us by giving up breathing for 1 full hour.

I'm starting to feel schizophrenic listening to reports on the environment and then on health care advances -- it's a conflict of interest. We're spending hunks of our intelligence on curing illnesses, learning not to be such bloodthirsty bastards, reducing infant mortality, extending life-spans... There's already so damned many of us, mostly cuz we just refuse to die, even if we weren't driving cars and eating cows, how much consumption and elimination can the earth sustain? Honestly, I am wondering more and more if our unwillingness to accept death as a natural consequence of life is what's truly over-burdening the earth.

I just had two beef and bean burritos.

I will sell you my carbon debits.

OH MY GOODNESS. Okay, I looked at this thread a couple of days ago and thought "That is the STUPIDEST thing I have ever heard of."

I just logged onto my work email to discover that my boss had sent out a mass mailing to our entire company saying HOW WONDERFUL this website was.

I am serious.

Oh well.

Now that it's spring here and feels like summer, I'm relieved.

Go, global warming, go!
