“Mom, which is worse for the environment, making energy from coal or wood?”
Admittedly this question is not as off the wall as many, but hey:
A) It was Earth Day this week
B) I’m still negotiating permission with my daughter to post the question I want to post (from her FB site) and
C) Given the content of that quote (and most of what she talks about these days), I’m heartened that a few of her brain cells are focused on sustainable energy and
D) I’d actually love to crowd-source readers’ informed opinion on this since it’s a good question and I don’t know if there is a standard response from the green movement; and if not I’m also not sure how to begin calculating my educated guess (even if I had the time to do so while investigating the International Narcotics Control Board‘s inequitable quota system for analgesics, which this week I don’t.) If only she had asked about coal v. nuclear. Kids these days!
Please leave your answers, witty or factual, below (with links if possible). Thanks!
