Our August “Notes for Earth” focuses on a common question when we consider traveling. Once again, a picture might be worth a thousand words.  This one is from the Sightline Institute. The comparisons are quite eye-opening, I found. There are some practical and philosophical issues about average emissions vs incremental emissions. Next time, we’ll take a look at these issues and introduce the concept of carbon offsets.

We are also looking for contributions to Notes 4 Earth, so if you have come across a good idea or you already are using an effective technique, please send it along to John Hilke via johnh@juustwa.org.   We are especially looking for ideas that also advance other social justice issues.
