Only in the National Post

Robert Fulford gets angry at those who speak of "carbon footprints" because they belong to that set of people who do things to the English language that he does not like. What's problematic here is that Fulford appears to be decrying a lack of economy with words, and yet, I can't think of a more concise way to describe the greenhouse gas emissions that result from the activities of an individual, nation, industry, corporation, or what-have-you.
