There is nothing like

Reading what you wrote yesterday and realizing it is nothing more than a bad-tempered, poorly reasoned tantrum

You are being too hard on yourself. I didn't think it poorly reasoned at all. Some of the shit that gets trucked in this country is (take your pick): criminal, insane, both, worse than any of the above.

We haul Wisconsin potatoes to Idaho and Idaho potatoes to Wisconsin. We haul special 20 packs of Coca-Cola to other Coca-Cola bottling plants 500 miles away because the other one was only set up to package 12 or 24 packs. And on and on one could go.

The blog you promoted yesterday really nailed it with the 'low hanging fruit' analogy concerning the easy conservation right in front of us. But we, of course, will be too stupid to act. It's a brave new Bean Counters world we live in now.

Aactually Mahtomedi:

It was the post that you didn't see that I was speaking of. I did a quick edit and decided no to publish instead.

I am actually quite please with the transportation one....I agree with myself wholeheartedly
