  •  I only stress about the things I can affect (0+ / 0-)

    I seldom see anyone trying to reduce their own carbon footprint, they only like to buy stuff. So I try not to stress.

    Activists pollute too, often much more so than others, they are richer and fly about, talking to each other about how much they are doing or demanding the government somehow save us from the evil oil companies, all the while pumping gas into their cars and denying me the carbon free food I feed my family. (free ranging wild meat)

    How big is your personal carbon footprint?

      and meet some actual environmentalists.

      I've only met the poor ones ;)  Some stress out over being able to afford a vehicle with a much lower carbon foot print. Others over when a decent public transportation system will cut commutes to more reasonable times, not to mention having a lower carbon foot print.

      I, and many others, am counting down to April 26 when the west Denver metro rail line opens :)  :)  The metro wide project started ??? ago with all kinds of negativity about whether the trains would ever have enough ridership to even pay the operating costs. They were and still are packed. Lots of people love them - including my sister and brother in law, who have one electric vehicle and one gas hog. The latter is his, drives it to play golf and 4 wheel in the mountains. At least he makes no pretense being concerned about his water and gas hobbies....
