Confess your eco-sins on Earth Day!

Inferno

Admit it: You buy your lunch in foam takeout containers. A lot. You drive an 8-cylinder truck. Alone. You don't print on both sides of your copy paper. You left the computer on all night. You can't stand those compact fluorescent bulbs.

Maybe you're starting to think a warmer planet might be better than the place you're going to when you die.

Get it off your chest! Grist.org wants you to confess this Friday, Earth Day (also Good Friday on the Christian calendar), and has set up an electronic confessional.

You'll feel much better, they assure. And you'll get a prayer card.

Agnostics can just repeat this prayer: "Dear God, if there is one, save my soul, if I have one."
