Just Stop Breathing

Good news:

Walking does more than driving to cause global warming, a leading environmentalist has calculated... The climate could benefit if people avoided exercise, ate less and became couch potatoes.
More environmental myth busting:

Traditional nappies are as bad as disposables... Paper bags cause more global warming than plastic... Diesel trains in rural Britain are more polluting than 4x4 vehicles... Burning wood for fuel is better for the environment than recycling it... Organic dairy cows are worse for the climate... Trees... absorb carbon (but are) major producers of methane, a much more harmful greenhouse gas.
