While global warming may, or may not, be true, the correlation with atmospheric CO2 concentration is weak. CO2 remains a trace component of our atmosphere and its effect on temperature is vastly outweighed by water vapor. Furthermore, is a warmer average temperature harmful for mankind? What is the ideal average temperature?

To celebrate “earth day” this year, I decided that I would do what the Obama administration just hasn’t been able to figure out: I would stimulate the economy by the conscious expansion of my carbon footprint.
