Earth Day 2008

As a tribute Earth Day (April 22) and to why we should all work together to save the planet (check your environmental footprint here), the 10 possible ways the Earth is sure to end. Also, the Wall Street Journal has a pretty good op-ed about the corporatization of the holiday - and how we should all strive to simplify our lives. But seriously, enjoy the day - be thankful for the deep breaths of air, the green trees, the blue sky. Make one commitment to change a small part of your lifestyle (seriously, you can do it.) Your children, and your planet, will thank you.

Above is a chart of the most financially efficient ways of reducing carbon emissions (from McKinsey Quarterly 2007).
