Carbon neutral

What does it mean to be, like Al Gore, a member of the Church of Carbon Neutrality? Says Mark Johnson of WDEV Radio, Vermont: “It’s kind of like sitting at a track and eating a box of cookies but paying someone to run around the track for you so you could be calorie neutral.”

Funny, maybe, but for that analogy to hold it would have to be true that it is equally harmful to eat the chocolate bar for both you and whoever you pay.

Obfuscating radio DJ's.. just what the world needs.

Hamish it was a metaphor, not an analogy. Metaphors do not have to be exact.
