I'm doing my best

Researchers say many ideas about sustainable living are a myth and people who believe they have green lifestyles "can be seen as some of the main culprits behind global warming", the Guardian reports.
According to the researchers, people who regularly recycle rubbish and save energy at home are also the most likely to take frequent long-haul flights abroad. The carbon emissions from such flights can swamp the green savings made at home, the researchers claim.

Questioned on their heavy use of flying, one respondent said: "I recycle 100% of what I can, there's not one piece of paper goes in my bin, so that makes me feel less guilty about flying as much as I do."
