CARBON LITERACY ON THE RISE
"Alex Williams writes in the New York Times that suburbanites are getting greener, quoting corn-burning environmental writer Mike Tidwell: 'In the American suburbs, people are suddenly literate in the language of carbon emissions and carbon footprints,' he said. 'I’m hearing it in most mainstream places.' Like at parties: 'This very nonhippie, not-environmental-cliché-type woman I heard asking another person, '‘I wonder what the carbon budget of these kiwis are?’ ' he said. 'I was just astonished.'"
