As I set here on my backporch, smoking a fine hand rolled cigar, looking at my organic garden: full of tomatoes, corn, okra and squash... I ponder the
following question. Am I a Zero Carbon Footprint kinda guy and is Anyone Really ? The fertilizer I used was Organic. Actually, it is the rabbit
manure gathered from my daughters pet rabbit " Brownie". She eats only organic, vegan items and produces only organic, vegan manure. I composted
that manure, and even vermicomposted some. So, no fossil fuels were used in the production of my fertilizer. I worked the garden, using a gasoline
powered tiller, but figure since my fertilizer is organic.. it cancels out the use of the tiller. Plus the fact, I did not have to drive my 4000 pound
fossil fuel burning truck to Wally World - Home of Generation X Consumers - to get it, that should be worth a few bonus points, right ? So, later when
I hand pick some veggies and my wife cooks them on the electric cook stove ( a indirect fossil fuel consumer ) have I killed the Zero Carbon Footprint
thing ? If, we consumed them raw - would that make GREENPEACE happy and do I really care (NO) ? Is Zero Carbon Footprint even really possible ?
Well, there you have it, hash it out..... Note: Consumption of the Non-Cuban Cigar was strickly for religious & spritiual proposes.... No animals
were injured or even offended by me gathering and disposing of their manure. I have not used any pesticides, so no little bugs, critters or fairies
were harmed in any way... My wife says she will gladly give up the use of the cook stove, if the general public is offended by its use ... The truth
is out there... So, go and find it.
