I wanted to save you the bother of making those corny carbon footprint jokes.
I'm off to Barcelona again on Thursday - but this time I've found a solution. Please help by following this advice.
If you don't preheat your oven before cooking your turkey, each one of you will save half a pound of carbon.
According to my calculations this is equivalent to 453 litres of carbon dioxide.
Surely that's enough to offset my flight and probably the one back home as well.
And if you choose a Waldorf salad for your Christmas feast - you'll be saving the turkey as well as the planet.
The current state of the pound means this will probably be my Christmas dinner. I'll be turning on and tuning in from Spain - so I'll be able to come round and thank you all personally.
