Random Aside: Burning Man

I'm usually not a follower of ValleyWag, but sometimes you gotta appreciate the gems they post... Like this one:

"We've said it before, and we'll say it again: The only green Burner is a dead Burner. This year's Burning Man arts festival in the Nevada desert has an environmental theme. But an environmental analysis has shown that more than 90 percent of the carbon dioxide spewed by Burning Man participants comes merely in getting to and from Black Rock City, the festival's temporary site. So by all means, pack up your RVs, buy that planet-destroying bottled water, and run your stereos and air conditioning all week off of diesel generators as you celebrate the greening of Burning Man. Go ahead, claim that you're raising "awareness" -- at the same time that you're raising the planet's temperature. You're not fooling anyone -- least of all Mother Nature."
