On why I’m killing the rain forest

I posted a sister picture to this towards the end of last semester, and I thought this would better show how my pursuit of a PhD is single-handedly killing the rain forests. I try to be a good environmentally friendly entity, I really do. I recycle. I keep my house frigidly cold. However, I have begun to realize (after buying a new bi box of paper) that as progressive and forward thinking social work is, at least PhD work isn’t very environmentally friendly. I think I said this before, but this is for ONE paper. Yikes.

Now hopefully the good will outweigh the bad.   Hopefully I will help change the world or at least teach people who help change the world, but in the mean while…. Shhh, don’t tell Ed Begley, he might come after me.

  1. Reading those papers in the form of paper definitely beats reading them on the screen, doesn’t it? That’s the only reason I print them out — and the same reason I feel guilty about printing them out.
