Calculate Your Nitrogen Footprint
nbc29 ^ | 03/07/11 | Jennifer Von Reuter

"If Americans just consumed only the protein, animal or vegetable protein, that they're supposed to consume instead of over consuming we would decrease the nitrogen pollution problem in the United States by a very large number," Galloway said.

Farms often times use fertilizers on crops which creates excess nitrogen. Galloway said producing food generates more nitrogen pollution than actually eating it.

"We want to make sure we get the message across to not only the consumer but the producer saying there are things that can be done to produce the food but lose less nitrogen to the environment in that process," Galloway said

We are doomed. Nitrogen makes up over 70% of our atmosphere.

UVa: beautiful and very historical campus populated by liberal azzclowns.

Please excuse me, I’m going out now to get something to eat. I used the nitrogen footprint tool to figure out how to maximize my poisonous nitrogen footprint, so I’ll be choosing from among the “unacceptable food groups” accordingly.

The only footprint I want to measure is the one I leave on somebody’s backside.

Well, lets see...Eats meat regularly, ah...Doesn't recycle paper bags, uh...Non-smoker, 10% discount...Of course, the 30% conservative voter surcharge...Tosses grass clippings in a compost heap (thats nature-friendly, right?)...

My nitrogen footprint is about a 13-wide.

Sure, you have my permission to weigh your poop.

Hell, far as I'm concerned you can bronze it, if that's what floats your boat. :)

"[mutter] nitrogen footprint.... wtf is wrong with these people?"

The world would be a better place if -they- just weighed their poop. I think you're onto something here...

What the heck’s wrong with nitrogen? What’s next, are they going to declare fresh water dangerous?

Make sure to see the last paragraph of this "news" story:

After reaching the results page, there are recommendations on how to reduce your nitrogen footprint including using public transportation and lowering your thermostat.

It's amazing that for every ill the enviromental wackos find, the cure always seems the same. In the olden days these wonder cure-alls had another name - snake oil.

Good point. The new snake oils are carbon & nitrogen footprints.
