    I gather Monday is Earth Day. I solemnly pledge to get into my SUV and drive at 19mpg to more places than I really need, and to spend lots of money on our expensive fuel. I pledge to pollute as I go to meet my clients and to thumb my nose at all green activists :p

    Plenty time for me to fire up my gasoline powered strimmer (week whacker), blower, pressure washer, lawnmower, chainsaw, cultivator and my SUV. Heck, I might even borrow one of those Hummer thingies that do 10mpg.

    Your estimated greenhouse gas emissions are 85 tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) equivalent per year.

    Any raise on 85 tons?

    Yikes... this is mine:
    Your estimated greenhouse gas emissions are 35 tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) equivalent per year, which is above the U.S. national average.

    Well, I'm 28 tons, but they failed to ask me about the electronics (like my 2 high power computers and laptop, all on 24/7)
