Autumnal Equinox – Can You Balance Your Footprint?
Tuesday, 22 September 2009
Today at 5:18pm summer ends when the sun crosses the equator for the autumnal equinox. Though summer will be gone, it will be fondly remembered by many who spent time on beaches, at the grill or in the woods. Most meteorologists are predicting another summer on or around June 2010. Click here to learn more about the autumnal equinox. A popular activity on the equinox is to try and balance an egg vertically. With the earth and sun so perfectly aligned, this has to be the ideal time to stand an egg on it’s head. Though this may seem like a trivial pursuit, egg balancing is an action that I am sure many will take today. If you can do it, please take a picture and send it to me! I will post it on this blog. If you are unsuccessful in your attempts to balance an egg, try balancing your carbon footprint. Did you know that you can calculate the impact of your home, travel and pretty much anything else using Carbonfund.org’s carbon calculators? Click here to calculate and offset your footprint. Balancing an egg today may be cool, but balancing your carbon footprint may be the best way to start off a new season. Have a great fall!
