    That's pretty cool. And I had no idea flights caused so much air pollution.

    Ctrl + Apple + D when hovering over a word, built in dictionary in OS X.

    Sure it does. It is like any other Oxford abridged dictionary.

    I found a way to emit less.




    Die.



    Or start riding a bike, only buying hand planted, cultivated, harvested, food. Never purchase anything that has been trucked, railed, flown, or sent seaway. Don't use lights, don't heat your home, don't drink water, don't bathe etc....


    You get the picture. Most people waste more energy trying not to waste energy than if they just used common sence. Don't idle around the parking lot for 10 minutes on your cell trying to find that spot 20 feet closer. Tire pressure? Anyone checked theirs recently? Do you need AC on in the car all the time, how about at home, if you are gone for a day turn it off.



    But using common sence is asking too much for most people.

    Isolationism is the key to reducing emissions. Traveling pollutes! Also, why are they picking on airline travelers first when OMG CHINA is out there. Don't get me wrong, nice effort. But why would they go for small fry when there's a whale out there?

    So if you die do you get to continue using the free version?

    As long as they don't have to fly your body more than once, I would think so.
