Knock knock Hello, sir. I know you, like most of us, are very concerned about he environment.
:Well yes, I am. (Hoping no one realizes the three cars in the driveway belong to the two people in this apartment).
: Our company is here for people like you. Responsible people who want to reduce, if not eliminate their carbon footprint.
Now I am not a complete Jerk. I am all for reducing my carbon foot print and all that shit, but eliminate.... yeah, I am not a vegan tree hugger either.
: For $25.00 a month our company ensures that all the energy you use in your home comes from renewable resources. (Sounds good until my brain actually kicked in)
She blinked at me for a minute, like she was shocked I would ask. :Well, we make sure all the power coming in to your home comes from wind, or solar power.
:Yeah, but how? As far as I know there is no possible way to separate my power from everyone elses.
: But you reduce your carbon footprint...
:Is the money used to support the growth of renewable energy?
: Well, no, we just... We make sure all the energy you use comes from renewable resources
: So basically on paper I am a good green consumer, but I'm just passing off my carbon footprint to others?
To the girl who I probably ruined her ideal summer job of helping the environment: I really am sorry, but I'm not paying you $25.00 a month to pretend I am helping the environment.
