Save the World: Legalize Alcohol

Some residents of Sharp County, Arkansas have a novel idea to curb greenhouse emissions: legalize alcohol. The group Save Energy Reap Taxes (SERT) argues that residents of this dry county in northeast Arkansas can travel 70 miles round-trip to legally purchase alcohol, emitting 22 pounds of carbon dioxide for every gallon of gas burned; they argue that a vote to legalize local alcohol sales would help the environment. According to the SERT website, "Legalizing local alcohol sales and other government policies that encourage energy conservation will help save the world from possible catastrophic climate change."
