Got Carbon?

The good folks at Oxford University Press have announced their latest choice for “Word of the Year.” It’s “carbon neutral.”

Hmmmm, I dunno — I have to confess I have a fondness for the runner-up, “elbow bump,” defined as: “a greeting in which two people touch elbows, recommended by the World Health Organization as an alternative to the handshake in order to reduce the spread of germs.” Excellent idea, that. For starters, I’d love to see politicians start working rope lines that way.
