Mr. President, What's the Carbon Footprint of the Surge in Afghanistan

I started this blog to address issues of particular concern to the RFC community. I hope you will agree that I’ve done that in the 31 blogs I’ve posted since I started on this path last spring. For the final installment of 2009 I’m going to shed this restraint and post something that I hope will be of general interest to everyone, rather than just RFC readers.
