When on vacation, I usually try and take public transportation where possible. On my last trip to Arizona, public transportation was just not available. I had to rent a car. I do regret the fact that I could have rented a hybrid and I didn't. I just didn't know that they were available in Arizona. Fox Rent A Car (no relation to Rupert Murdoch I hope) provides hybrids in certain parts of Arizona and California.
I have been harping quite a bit on Kyoto lately. What use is any of that if I myself don't maintain standards. So I went about trying to determine the carbon footprint of my trip. It turns out the air travel and the car rental together would have resulted in about 2240 pounds of CO2!!!
I hope to buy equivalent carbon credits from Women for Sustainable development or CarbonNeutral.com and wash away my CO2 sins.
