Ahh, tis the season for seasonal letters. I really like reading how friends have been doing and I really like learning from what they share. An old friend included a link to the Nature Conservancy's carbon calculator in her annual letter. It's good, but I think it must be a bit on the optimistic side because the 'long' flights to meetings I made in the past year didn't completely break our family's carbon budget. However, it does show you the impacts of your actions and compares them to 'world' and 'US' average carbon consumption. Check it out and see how you can improve your carbon consumption in this next year!
