Energy Efficient!!

I come to a cat-warmed seat.   Ah!!

There is an article in the Wall Street Journal on the new $100,000 Lexus Hybrid.   Yes, 100,000.  It is called pale green.  The article by Jeff Sabatini suggests that if one is interested in being dark green they walk, bike, or take the bus.   He ends with this comment.

    "Would that we could save the planet while reposed in the back seat of a chauffeured limo, air-conditioned seats reclined, watching a Live Earth concert on DVD and writing a check for carbon offsets.  Reality dictates otherwise."

    Yes. While I don't ride in a chauffeur-driven limo, I am guilty here, and though I attempt mindfulness, my carbon footprint is huge.  At least I will be driving my car a short way  today and parking it and not moving it until late Sunday afternoon.  I look forward to traversing the city on foot.

    Beautiful weather is again predicted and this Sunday will finally bring all computer clocks and watches back in-line with the rest of the world.
