    I am no big global warming fanatic or anything, but one of my professors showed us this link and I thought it was pretty cool. Try it out if you are curious about how much carbon you are responsible for releasing, at least according to this calculator.

I know lets all let the fish go home and cut the pumps and lights off :) This hobby next to racing makes a huge print to step in..

    Well in Va I'd not have such large one myself as its like 1/2 the cost of Nat Gas and Electricity then here in unionized Ct. where you just have to take take it like a man while 14 guys stand around and look at the one working :) the Helper .. It amazes me how much Electricity and Nat gas cost here in the N.E hell Diesel and gas even cost 90.ct plus a gallon more even . Taxes for spending I guess ?

    its funny how I set everything to the lowest it would go, no car, 100% renewable sources for electricity and its still 1.35... I guess that counts for breathing, haha.
