Today is Earth DayApril 22, 2008 Tim WorstallEnvironmentalism3 Comments* It\’s also Lenin\’s birthday. Coincidence? I think not. Clearly, just a chance for watermelons to double up on the celebrations and thus preserve resources. previousPayments for FailurenextTimmy Elsewhere 3 thoughts on “Today is Earth Day” David Gillies April 22, 2008 at 5:02 pm McDonald’s for lunch for me I think. I’m not a huge fan, but one has to play one’s part. JuliaM April 22, 2008 at 5:11 pm Use the drive-in. Even if it’s within walking distance… 🙂 David Gillies April 22, 2008 at 5:27 pm Sadly, JuliaM, my carbon footprint is mouselike rather than elephantine, for I neither own a car nor have air conditioning (I live five minutes on foot from my office and the temperature here never deviates by more than a few °C from the mean). I’ve been doing my damnedest to be a more rapacious consumer but it’s bloody hard work. I can’t even crack $50 a month (i.e. 25 quid) for my electricity bill. All those online calculate-how-green-you-are thingies make me out to be roughly equivalent to some poor peasant living in a mud hut in Burundi. It’s embarrassing, I tell you.
