New Year's Resolutions: Less is More
I love this week's Green.view from The Economist. The post challenges the value in so-called "green" New Year's resolutions like super-small scale wind power and fluorescent bulbs in the home and suggests that simpler, more traditional resolutions such as quitting smoking and cutting back on drinking actually have a greater positive impact on the planet. Read it here for a refreshing reminder that less is more: less consumption means reduced CO2 emissions unless of course, as Green.view points out, it leads to a baby boom.
