just in case anybody even knows this group exists- from paul wheaton

aka the duke of permaculture. the go to guy about hugelkultur.

he needs some help. not money, help getting the message out.

I watched dicaprio's new movie about carbon footprint. It seemed to be all about being angry at bad guys and very little about things people can do. And I saw letterman had a similar thing. Both great shows, but with very little that people can do. Both about reducing carbon footprint.

Converting from electric heat to a rocket mass heater reduces your carbon footprint as much as parking seven cars.

I keep seeing stuff where at the tippy top of the list of how people can reduce their own carbon footprint is by buying LED lightbulbs. That is such useless horseshit. And for people in northern climates, it is utterly wrong. I wrote about why here.

Thousands of people are burning petroleum to protest something that would not exist if people used less petroleum. And I think they could have done a thousand times more for their cause if they stayed at home and advocated this.
