Of Carbon and Sodium

Carbon is really starting to remind me of Sodium. Not that Sodium gets my hands dirty or greasy or anything. Most people have never even seen Sodium, it’s really weird stuff. But just a few years back everyone was getting it out of our diet. Cereal boxes were labeled with Sodium content by decree. Low Sodium this and low Sodium that and Sodium isn’t even bad for you. It is Chlorine or Chloride that should be labeled. Yet a generation of nutrition students went on to become government regulators with the misconception burned in.

And now we have Carbon taxes and Carbon footprints and another generation of students. All I know is that if I have Carbon footprints, I make sure to wipe my feet before going in the house.
