Sorry that I will miss Live Earth. I will be in the woods, living carbon neutral for the week, working on repairing backpacking trails. Actually, with my donations to carbon offset programs, I will be on the positive side of the carbon equation. Why settle for carbon neutral? Anyway, I encourage others to turn off the TV and plant a tree or write a check.
