week we're keeping it simple.
Everybody's talking about it. How we can reduce it? Can be traded for cash? Who
is responsible for measurement? Where is the impact felt most? Why
does it matter in the first place? Is it too late to turn back now?
We're talking about our carbon footprint. It's a new fancy term some clever
people came up with a few years ago to describe the affect our activities
have on our environment. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to know that
humans have impacted our planet far more in the past 50 years than in the
previous several billion. We call it progress.
You might believe that your actions are insignificant, that the big
corporations and industrialized nations are destroying earth. We wonder,
though, where all these people came from, since organizations are actually
groups of individuals.
Think about whether your actions really make that much difference and, if they
do, whether they can really be measured. If you don't think so, then we have
a few suggestions. Leave all of your lights and computers and air
conditioning and television on for 24 hours a day for the next 30 days. If
you have access to a car, start it now and leave it running for the next 7
days -- you may need to stay near a filling station. Collect all of your
take-away packaging and keep all of your household rubbish in your kitchen
for the next 4 weeks. The results, we think, may be obvious.
How do you contribute ?
Listen to your own heartbeat.
