Sheryl Crow, internationally famous Global Warming expert, has figured out how to solve Global Warming (Praise Gaia and her anointed prophets, the Goreacle and tom Brokaw. Hah-men!). She suggested that we cut back on the amount of toilet paper we use, and we have a reusable "dining sleeve" to replace paper napkins.

Crisis averted! Thanks, Sheryl! Actually, Sheryl has said it was a joke to get people talking about Global Warming.

Let's just see what kind of Carbon footprint Sheryl leaves.

According to her concert rider, she tours with three 18-wheelers, four buses and six cars. Most of her shows requires lights which are run off electricity (not to mention amps, monitors and guitars), and electricity is created when coal is burned. As I understand it, using locally produced foods also decreases Global Warming. For every show she requires 12 bottles of Grolsch, from Holland and 6 bottles of a local beer. If it's Monday, she needs Maker's Mark from Kentucky, Tuesday it's Bombay Gin imported from England, Wednesday it's Courvosier Brandy from France, Thursday it's Champagne from France since that's the only place Champagne comes from, Friday and Sunday it's Silver Tequila presumably from Mexico, and on Saturday it's Absolut Vodka from Sweden. She always requires a "a good Australian cabernet" from, well, Australia.

Hmm. That's a pretty good sized carbon footprint just for the alcohol!
