Moët is murder

People who drink champagne – like, say, Cactus Kate – are destroying the planet. That is the only conclusion one can draw from this report in the Guardian:
French researchers used a mass spectrometer to analyse component chemicals as wines effervesce. Led by Professor Gérard Liger-Belair, from the University of Reims Champagne-Ardenne in France, they estimated that an average 75cl bottle of champagne produces 100m bubbles and releases 5 litres of carbon dioxide.
But I’m afraid that if I have to choose between drinking champagne and saving the planet, Gaia can look out for herself.

Fabulous. It's my mission to use up as much of the earth's natural resources as I can on my time on it.
