A quick note for Iowans grilling on Memorial Day:

Charcoal grills release 11 pounds of the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide into the air every hour. This is almost exactly twice the amount of carbon dioxide released during gas grilling.

If you have the choice, consider using a gas grill both today and the rest of the summer.
