I Am The Greenest Man in the World!

No, I’m not quoting Al Gore in the title of this blog post. I am speaking as myself. I just realized I am the greenest man in the world, and possibly the greenest person in the world.

Sure, Al Gore is generally recognized as the greenest man in the world. After all, who has done more to publicize the inconvenient truth of global warming and to plead for – no to compel –  us all to reduce our carbon footprints in order to save the planet. He says:

Each one of us is a cause of global warming, but each one of us can make choices to change that with the things we buy, the electricity we use, the cars we drive; we can make choices to bring our individual carbon emissions to zero.

Yes, we each must do our part. Of course, none of us are as noble as Mr. Gore, so we must settle for half-measures. Or, at least that is what I thought. Then I compared my carbon footprint to his.

Here is a quick tally:

Carbon Producing Item        Mr. Gore                Me                                     Advantage

House                                             10,000 sq ft           1,000 sq ft                          Me

Cars                                                 Limo idling           Toyota SUV                        Me

Travel                                              private jet             airline economy class        Me

Those are the big carbon producers, and the tally is not even close. I figure my carbon footprint is about 1/20th of his. So, I declare myself the new greenest man alive! Care to challenge me?

Oh yes, there is one green area where Al Gore beats me hand down, making money off investments in green companies. If I was cynical, I would think his public speeches are related to this rather than real concern for the environment. No, that can’t be it.

    Sorry for the multiple updates. Had some trouble with the WordPress editor. It does not like tabs apparently.
