Good point.  Just seemed to me (from as far as I could make it in the article) that Brunswick people couldn't even be bothered to crush an aluminum can, and all jet around in Ford Expeditions.  Fair enough, but my first thought was I bet I see more petrol wasted just on the local law enforcement here running their vehicles non-stop through the winter, than Billy-Bob could ever burn pickin' up his cousin' in a bored big block 350.

I guess you're right though.

You have to forgive stroh. He is, after all, a Mustang owner and probably thinks that 289 is plenty big enough.

If Clive says so, it must be true.

I work from home and my car doesn't move for days on end.  I'm an eco-hero.

On the other hand, probably about 60% of my driving is for golf and snowboarding.  Clearly, I don't care about the planet.

I plan on hand-washing my underwear with sand and recycled pond water to make up for it.

At least the stains will be more uniform.

FWIW, we try to be smart about bundling errands, taking the Prius or Speed Triple instead of the Forester, using greener laundry and household cleaners (that go down the drain and do end up somewhere), etc.  But at least one adult in my household is not an eco-weenie whack-job.

We've been pretty green for a number of years.  Can always do more, but we've come a long way.

here are some ways we have (and still are) worked hard at cutting back

bus/shuttles where possible
walk where possible
combine errands/trips in car
check tire pressure more often
thermostat low/high as is bearable
refridge/freezer as high as is bearable
shortened shower length
decreases shower temperature
less dishwasher use
hand dishwashing with only cold water
more full loads for laundry
higher efficiency lights
as much local food as possible (on our budget)
cooking far less 'long time' meals (turkeys, roasts, etc)
hand chopping/cutting  and mixing/stirring everything possible
charging cell phone in car when possible
low power dlp in place of plasma
turning off the computer when not in use
turning off xbox360 when not in use
turning off hd-dvd when not in use
recycling everything possible in our area
reading more during daylight hours than night


not much, but a good start.  Sad
