Driving vs. Flying CO2 Emissions

A NM to CA Road-Trip Comparison

Choosing between traveling by airplane and traveling by car is usually pretty simple. The questions one answers are usually 'How far am I traveling, how much time do I have, how much will a flight cost compared to driving costs, Is there an ocean between me and my destination?' One new factor that some of us are starting to take into account when making travel choices is 'Which mode of travel produces the least CO2?' I've made a direct comparison of two trips between New Mexico and California, one taken by air and the other by car.

Why I Garden #4

Indian Popcorn ears

We've had the first hard freeze of the season, so the garden is done for the year. Unfortunately, a few green tomatoes went straight to the compost bin as I didn't pull them early enough. Now it's time to turn the compost and start planning for next year.

Here are a few colorful ears of Indian Popcorn that we'll be popping pretty soon.

Water is Life

Colorado River in the Grand Canyon

If you've lived in the American Southwest for any length of time you've heard about the importance of water. If you're a rancher or farmer, builder/developer or a municipal water manager you probably have strong opinions about water. The underlying issue is a simple one - in the arid American west there are more users for water than the supply can support. While the problem of greater demand than supply of water is simple, the devil is in the details.

What I did on my Fall Vacation

National Parks patches

For the first time in quite a long time I took a real vacation (with my very significant other). We tried to do too much in too little time, but I've got a few stories in the works so check back over the next few days as I post them. Here's a teaser to give you an idea of where we've been.

Lane Sharing is Caring

Shared Lane Marking - Sharrow

For those of us who ride a bicycle through town either for pleasure, exercise or just getting around we know what an adventure cycling can be. A small segment of the automobile-driving population seems to not know what to do about cyclists. Some motorists either give us a huge berth or near to none at all and many seem either puzzled or strangely frightened by bike riders. An even smaller, but frightening, minority of car drivers are actually hostile to cyclists. Which begs the question, how can automobile and bike drivers learn to get along?
