Gore help me. I'm gonna need waaaaay more carbon offsets. The Associated Press: Ecologists Study Efficiency of Divorce
WASHINGTON AP — Divorce can be bad for the environment. In countries around the world divorce rates have been rising, and each time a family dissolves the result is two new households. "A married household actually uses resources more efficiently than a divorced household," said Jianguo Liu, an ecologist at Michigan State University whose analysis of the environmental impact of divorce appears in this weeks online edition of Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

Ah, but <i>you</i> drive a hybrid, so all is forgiven. You know what they say about us SUV drivers, however....<br /> <br /> Maybe it's just my (lack of) math skills, but isn't marriage a combination of two households to begin with? So...divorce is just returning the status quo; while marriage usually results in little miniature carbon footprints called "children"--who grow up to start their own households.... right? So that means I've created... how many?... households?<br /> <br /> You're right. Now <i>I'm</i> confused, too.
Wow! I guess I'm a good conservative then cause I've made 3 households and their associated carbon footprints! Or is it 6? or 5? damn that's confusing!
