Clark: Let Others Go Green

Monday was Earth Day, the day we all try to show our friends and neighbors just how much more we care about saving the planet than they do. A good way to do this, by the way, is to work certain ecological words like “chlorofluorocarbons” or “Al Gore” into your casual conversation, such as … “If that Al Gore gets any fatter he’ll look like a chlorofluorocarbon-filled float in a Macy’s parade.” See? Anyway, I used to pretend to go “green” by mowing and watering my lawn, trimming my hedges and picking up yard waste. Then I discovered that there are people in the community who, for the right amount of green, will go green for you. This has allowed me to devote myself to even bigger eco-projects, like getting my grime-covered 1967 Oldsmobile Vista Cruiser back on the road/Doug Clark, SR. More here.

Question: Would you describe yourself as "green"? Why? Why not?
