It’s too easy being green.  That title is stolen from a February 4 Wall Street Journal column by David Owen.  His column makes so many good points so eloquently it’s hard to know where to start.  So I won’t try.  Instead, here’s a pithy quote:

“A colleague of mine produces her own eggs by raising chickens in her backyard. But she also drives individual hens to the veterinarian, giving her breakfasts an impressively huge carbon footprint.”

I urge everyone to read the entire article.
