Twice within the last week I have come upon the term "carbon footprint. " From the context of each passage, I was able to determine that this has something to do with the environment. Previously, I had never heard those two words together. I started feeling out of the loop, similar to the feeling I get around 20-somethings who have all the latest technological gadgets and a lingo to go with them. It's hard to keep up. I must be getting old, and I'm hanging on to my dial-up Internet service to prove it. Actually, I had the feeling that this term is something I should know, so I took the safe route.

Editor's note: This is the first article in a two-part series about one teen's struggle to go fossil free for a week. What would life be like without fossil fuels? Pretty hard to imagine, in a civilization where nearly everything we do involves petroleum, natural gas or coal. When we use electrical appliances, we're using fossil fuels - the production of electricity uses coal. When we drive in cars, we're burning gasoline, a refined version of petroleum. When companies make things - furniture, silverware, pasta, soap or this newspaper - fossil fuels help them.
