I like to think of file cabinets as carbon sinks.

I agree with the first part, but not the second part. No time for guilt.
Besides, I can't stand reading more than a few sentences on a screen. I
recycle everything eventually., but anything I print out I file. File
cabinets are the hidden landfills of America. I wish I had more of them.

I agree and do that too. :"(
