A change in title....

This blog has been mostly about being Car free, but I decided that there is another challenge facing us in this age and that's our carbon consumption. Cars are just one part of the Carbon equation, so I thought I would transform this blog into reducing one's carbon footprint, especially during the cold of the season.

Today's post comes from Jason Fry of the Wall Street Journal who explores his electricity use coming to the conclusion that much our electricity consumption comes from lights and heat, not new fangled computers.

As we get more and more efficient, will it make more sense except for archival purposes to never make a DVD or CD again? Maybe not a lot of carbon, but then think about when was the last time you got an AOL CD?

This holiday season we don't give stuff, we save up for trips and experiences...
