David Chameides is collecting all the trash he generates in a year in his home in Los Angeles in October 2008. Anti-global warming zealots go to extreme measures to minimize their carbon footprints. They watch electric meters the way anorexics obsess over scales. They bike long distances to avoid driving or mass transit, recycle positively everything, eschew heating and air conditioning and avoid air travel.
