    You guys, I'm so disappointed in my Carbon footprint. I thought we were doing better than we are. It looks like we really need to make some changes to our driving habits and meat eating. Oy! I  really thought we were doing better than we were. It was an eye-opener to what counts more than others. Already we've decreased our meat eating habits. Changing  driving habits is going to be hard. How did you guys feel about your footprints?

      Thanks for doing your carbon footprint, Lisa!  Yes, it is very revealing to find out where carbon use is concentrated in our lives. I'm pretty sure none (or few) of us make it through to December without meeting our "Earth Overshoot" day :-(  But now that we know better, we can do better. And you already are!! Congrats on eating less meat!!!!!
