June Tally

I wish I could hang my head in shame. Here is my June tally:

CO2 saved: 10.8
Miles Biked: 7

Total for three months:
CO2 saved: 83.1
Miles Biked: 44.5

Even bluebirds fall sometimes I guess.

Why are you hanging your head in shame? Is the amount of Co2 saved a net amount? Does it mean that you have saved more C02 than you have generated? If so, I don't see why you are shamed by the amount. If not, can you please clarify what you mean?

It's just a tally of the amount of CO2 I saved by not driving when I otherwise would have. I use the widely used average that a 20 mpg car releases 1 lb. CO2 per mile.

I do not include things that I walk to anyway, like the grocery. I'm disappointed in myself because I only live 2 miles from work! So those miles I biked were all from going to the gym...another disappointment that I only went to the gym 5 times.

But I am happy to report that I rode my bike to work today! The guilt works! : )
