Friday wrap-up: Park(ing), Green beer, and moral offsets add to carbon offsets

Park(ing) day was last Friday – see No Impact Man’s blog for photos of his park and comments about this action all over the country. http://noimpactman.typepad.com/blog/2007/09/our-squatters-p.html

Boozing for the environment – if you must drink beer, drink green, and not in the St. Patrick’s Day sense. See Life Goggles’ tips: http://www.lifegoggles.com/787/the-fun-green-roundup-2/

And if you missed it, yesterday’s “Talk of the Nation” on NPR addressed the concept (tongue in cheek, I hope?) of moral offsets — say an adultery offset, or a vegan offset, to make up for our moral failings. Don’t forget to check out the comments on the blog related to that story – they are interesting reading. http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=14771204
