Things I'm Doing To Save The Planet


Everyone's got tips for going green. Here are mine.

  • Cancel all dead-tree subscriptions. (Can't recall who suggested this.)
  • Boycott tv or movies filmed on location (reduce Hollywood's carbon footprint).
  • Boycott protests and demonstrations not within walking or biking range.
  • Support small, independent, locally-grown activists. Down with Big Protest and the Sam's Clubization of dissent.
  • Reasoned discussion (emits less CO2 than angry chanting).
  • Less exercise (same reason).
  • No more burning things in effigy.
  • Compost your protest signs; use the wooden handles to stake tomatoes.

And while we're on the environment, did you know Yellowstone National Park is over the site of an active super volcano?
