Carbon Footprint of a Latte
Then there is the coffee bean itself - originating on a plant that requires CO2, by the way - which must find itself through the same distribution routes, to a place of roasting (OMG the carbon!) and grinding.
I am having a hard time thinking of a progressive beverage with a larger carbon footprint. For what it's worth, having skim might reduce your own footprint, but is probably even worse for the planet because of the additional processing steps required to reduce the fat content, separate handling, equipment, and so forth.
My conclusion: you can't be true progressive and drink latte at the same time.
