My good friend, Charles, has often argued about the dangers of over-populating on the planet. He believes in a two child per couple limit, reasoning that human beings should only seek to replace themselves. Of course, Charles has three children, so his credibility is now shot.
Apparently he was right. It appears that just walking my dog every morning is proving to be more damaging to the climate than driving to work.
It’s not my personal use of fossil fuels that is threatening to melt the polar ice caps, but the breakfast burrito and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches that keep me upright and moving throughout the day.
Food production, it turns out, producing more carbon, than the burning of fossil fuels on a mile-by-mile comparison. m
While we’re on the topic of food, this has to be one of the least eco-friendly food products on the planet.
Still, it looks damn good.
