OK, we went out to eat at our favorite restaurant today, my oldest son and I had a conversation.. Since CO2 is supposed to cause Global Warming, And since the carbonation in Pepsi, Coke, etc is a result of CO2... We were wondering how long will it be before Soda Pop is blamed for Global Warming? So I came home and googled it, and sure enough there is an article... "Anyhow...now for the math: 300 million people x 56 gallons per person x 3.78 liters per gallon x 6 grams of CO2 per liter soda / 1000 g per kg / 978 kg per ton = 389,570 tons of CO2 emitted by soft drinks yearly in America alone." http://www.ecogeek.org/content/view/691/85/ So give up that Pepsi, Mountain Dew, Coke, Root Beer... It's a sin I say... everytime you drink a soda, you are polluting God's creation!!
