And even more follow-up

According to Morning Edition the Queen of England is planning to spend $20,000 on carbon credits to offset the carbon emitted on her state visit to the US. Why does she have to spend so much money? Because she wants to feel better about the fact that she and her small entourage are flying by themselves in an otherwise empty large passenger jet! Just the kind of hypocritical "conservation" I like to waste my time railing against.

oh don't hate on the queen! give her a break, do you really expect her to travel with commoners? at least she's acknowledging her carbon foot-print, a step ahead of president bush using air force 1 ever other minute to fly to his ranch in texas!
