Green Wine?

Is drinking wine bad for the planet? One conscientious oenophile conducted a study, measuring the amount of carbon resources it took to ship wine from California and from France. He ended up drawing the Green Wine Line featured on the map below: drinkers West of the line will leave the smallest carbon footprint by drinking wine from California, Oregon, or Washington, while wine enthusiasts East of the line will do best to indulge in European counterparts. The study didn't include data on shipping wine from the Southern Hemisphere.

You can also minimize the impact your drinking has on the environment by picking bigger bottles (yeah, magnums!) and saying "no" to bottled water (or at the very least choosing a local bottled water!).
