AGW Today: Pee Before You Fly To Save Gaia

Not that long in the past, someone like Alison Gannet would be treated as a nut and a kook. Now, people listen breathlessly

Actually, the 45-year-old extreme freeskier from Colorado has given up heli-skiing and her snowmobile. She also photo documents glacier change on her ski trips around the planet. …the woman Outside Magazine named as one of its ‘Green All-Stars’ this year offers practical eco-living ideas without sounding holier than thou.

That’s not very carbon dioxide neutral, eh?

Intrigued by her eco-cred – Gannett graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Studies from the Universidad del Valle de Mexico and founded her first business to battle climate change back in 1991 … My plug-in-hybrid solar-panelled SUV actually increased my carbon footprint by 100 tons in one year …

So, hybrids are bad?

As a climate change solutions consultant I travel the globe working with individuals, companies, events, schools, communities and governments

????????

“Heli-skiing is about 75 US gallons of gas an hour

Maybe you should stop. Oh, sorry, you want everyone else to change.

Q: What is your favourite non-skiing hobby?

“Surfing in warm water, eating my high-carbon footprint chocolate.” she says with a laugh.

Behavior change is for the little people.

Q: People might laugh at the idea of peeing before you fly to reduce jet fuel emissions. But how much difference does it make when every passenger urinates before they get on the plane?

“For every 2.2 pounds of weight reduction, airlines save 9,000 pounds of fuel per year…”

I’m not sure I really needed to know that. I hope she does like Sheryl Crow and restricts herself to 1 sheet of TP.

Really, if a friend of yours said that to you, would you call them a wackjob and ask if they had been drinking?

    Hey Alison. Thanks. Thanks alot. Thanks for leaving that much more gas, coal, oil and petroleum products for me and my family to buy and use. Your removing yourself from society helps keep the prices down.

    Thanks.
