The Edwards family: simply nutty

Elizabeth Edwards won't eat tangerines because her fear of (non-existent) global warming means she wants to buy local so as to avoid increasing the carbon associated with food transport across state lines.

I'm thinking that heating and cooling a smaller house than the 28,000 square foot monstrosity she and her husband had custom-built in a forested area specially cleared out for them would save a lot more carbon than foregoing tangerines from Florida. Perhaps The Monk is merely naive.
