A lot of hot air

I see that the Law Society has jumped on the climate change bandwagon, launching the "Legal Sector Alliance" and adopting an "environmental management scheme". Quite what effect "switching to recycled paper for business use" and the use of ‘green’ energy by this profession will have upon the world's climate (which, incidentally, has always and will always change, irrespective of man's efforts), is not clear to me. Still, I was pleased to read this passage from the article in the Gazette, assuming that the word 'neutral' has been included in error:

"The launch comes just days after the Law Society Council agreed a pledge that will see Chancery Lane become carbon neutral by 2011."

Presumably the heat generated by this selfless act will be converted into 'green' energy.
