“When Trying to Preserve the Planet Strains the Relationship.” A pretty hilarious article about the very First World problem of arguing with your family about environmental issues. My favorite part was: “Her mother, who says she prefers the way food tastes when it is served on Styrofoam, notes that washing dishes has its own environmental costs.” (italics mine) HEE! Luckily the Snook and I are pretty much on the same page when it comes to this stuff. Well, except that he thinks trying to grow our own vegetables is pretty pointless. (Given our limited success in this area, I’m starting to come around to his perspective.) Oh, and he leaves lights on all the time. That drives me crazy.
