This semester (my final one! Hooray!) I am taking a course entitled “Environmental Sociology”. The environment, and how humans interact with it, has long been one of my pet subjects. I am learning how we can live in more harmony with nature, and I believe that Christians have a responsibility to do so (Genesis 2:15).
Anyway, my instructor, Thomas Overton, mentioned a carbon footprint calculator on the website for the Nature Conservancy. I plugged in my information, and was gratified that my score, 64 tons of C02 per year is less than the national average of 80. However, I really NEED to find ways to lower it!
I encourage you to check your own carbon footprint, and post the results here. The only way we are going to change things is by learning how to do it!
