New Years resolution

This resolution of mine is not a new years resolution, though it is starting now. It is a life resolution. For a long time now I have felt guilting about my self pleasing search for adventures. Sure they fulfill me and challenge me in so many ways, but do they do any good for anyone else? Do they need to do any good for anyone else? Life is a selfish adventure, one that is spent in ones mind with ones opinions, but if our actions affect others then we should recognize their effects and if negative change them..

I have known for awhile that my carbon footprint is really bad… really, really bad.. but the cynic in me has been saying that it is up to the big companies, the governments to implement restrictions and changes. That the little guy cannot do much when there is such a huge level of waste that I cannot change. Yet, if I do nothing then I am part of the problem…

So I would like to be part of a solution, I would like to implement changes to my life that will lower my carbon footprint, I would like to use what voice I have to also get others to change their lives a little.

This is fairly atrocious… actually completely atrocious. I also feel like it is not honest about my meat eating habits. But looking at this pictures a pretty clear image of what I am doing wrong.. Travel…as a pro skier I travel around the world searching descents and new mountains, i fly to france to Prototype equipment, I travel to give public presentations.. travel is a huge factor…ohh yah I also drive my f-350, my snowmobile, and take helicopters to fly around and heli ski. So this is a huge portion of my life that I can change. I added in the car portion of my test included snowmobile and helicopters, as well as I could…

This is also my job, but really my job is story creation and perhaps I can create stories without killing the world?

So my new challenge is to decrease this footprint and change it… there are so many good sites and ideas out in the web-universe that I have endless education to get me on my way..
