May we revel in the beauty of nature in 2008, and decide to do something about it. I am dedicated to reducing my carbon footprint, and I am committed to shifting a good portion of my academic research to the issue of sustainability. One idea I am working on is a way to provide people information about the carbon footprint of each product they buy. Globalization of our supply chains has been good for large multi-national businesses economically, but we don't think about what all that transportation does to our environment. Just as we have movements to eat locally, so too will we begin to see a trend to supply locally (again).
