It's very difficult given my situation to be as green as I possibly can, as I don't live on my own yet. Since I'm a college student I'm living in a dorm room. But my school is also one of the most environmentally responsible in the US and Canada. Much of the food in the dining hall is sourced from within 100 miles of the school, a lot of the school's power is generated renewably on campus via solar, a good deal of the rest is generated renewably off campus, it has a strict water conservation regime, new buildings are LEED certified, and we are cutting back on the use of paper by making as many things electronic as possible. The fact that my school is so green is one of the reasons I chose to come here. In the future, I plan to grow most of my food myself and live off of the grid using solar power.

I could consume as though it were a contest and I still would beat a lot of people in the green-living game. I have no kids, so their carbon and their children's carbon, etc. will not be added to my tally.

I don't consume as if it were a contest, I actually do what I can to use more efficient technology, grow my own food, and so on. But not being a breeder I am already way ahead of the game. (and I can always spoil my nieces and nephew if I long for the comfort of my own genetic propagation)

Sorry, I was a bit off last night. But I did train my child well. His small footprint is probably because he was raised to pinch a penny by me. (The ex hadn't a clue and never will.)

DS lives in Catonsville, MD so he has the snow and cold but I have no doubt he layers rather than turn up the thermostat. (Fortunately he teamed up with a kindred soul.) He grew up with window ACs in an old Victorian; his new house probably has central but I'm willing to bet he keeps it on the warm side or closes vents in unused areas. (Yes Baltimore can get miserably uncomfortable.)

Even when I was in a dorm room I took short showers; it can be done. (Honestly I don't understand why someone needs 45 minutes under streaming/steaming water to get clean--I really don't. Get wet, turn off the water, soap up, rinse off. Done.)

ETA: I was audited by WSSC not once but twice because they couldn't believe I used so little water in a huge house occupied by a family of 3. They were sure my meter was broken. Nope.

So instead of using a renewable resource in trees for paper, your school has opted to use electronics that use electricity which is more than likely produced from a non-renewable resource? The most "green" way to go through college would be going back to the old school pen and paper.

This year's El Nino is unprecedented. Southern CA and northern Mexico have had spring-like conditions throughout January and the high pressure in that area has turned the Canadian winter into a hose faucet on the rest of the north american continent. If you can't explain it, that's understandable -- but to deny it is plain foolhardy.

Maybe a nice read for you all. This is a famous University in what is called "Food Valley" in the Netherlands.

Climate & Water - Wageningen UR

Obviously they have concluded that the climate is changing, in any case they are doing some nice scientific research on the subject.

Definitely something worth checking out. Thanks!

I'm sure that people are still out there trying to get on one government funding train or another, and massaging their data either before or after the fact. On the otherhand, all the research that was approved by review boards I served on have been stellar examples of meticulous projects. Never have their results been called into question. Don't expect to hear about it on Faux News either - good science rarely sells.

Actually, if you read what I'd said, you'd know my school gets most of its power from renewables, namely solar and wind. My university is well on its way to becoming climate neutral. And also, cutting down trees and making paper creates greenhouse gas emissions, even though trees are a renewable resource. Once you cut down a tree, all of the biomass it has stored over its lifetime eventually gets converted into carbon dioxide and methane. And on top of that, that tree is no longer there to suck up CO2 from the atmosphere and store it. Not to mention how terrible clear cutting forests is for soil.

I have but don't use them currently so don't. I give the City all of my food cans, plastic, glass and cardboard; I sell my aluminum cans 2x a year. Don't get much for them but it's something towards more beverages. 8 bucks is 8 bucks!
