A friend emailed me the other day, saying that she saw me walking home toting my huge laptop backpack. She remarked that it was an excellent activity for my physical fitness as well as for doing my part to save the Earth.
I wrote her back that the trip home was much harder than the trip into work every morning. Going to work is mostly downhill and the temperature is nice and cool.
I also said that as far as saving the Earth goes, perhaps I would expire from heat exhaustion, which would shrink my carbon footprint to zero. In fact, I think I would become a net producer, as opposed to being a consumer, of the Earth's services.
The only good human is a dead human?
