    Doing anything special on Earth Day (April 22)?

    Doing anything special on Earth Day this Thursday?

    Doing anything "green"?
    Doing anything with a focus on environmental sustainability?

    I'm hoping to catch a show of Oceans in the evening.

    I'm taking my hummer out to the dunes to spend the whole day test driving it. I got new seats put in it, so I need to break them in. After that, probably some nice fast food for dinner. Other than that, nothing.

    I'm gonna be green by driving 20 minutes away to get a free hat from the Disney Store lol Unless I am too lazy
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Re: Doing anything special on Earth Day (April 22)?

    I think I'll burn a bunch of plastic in the stove, dump some used engine oil out on the driveway, and maybe take a bunch of glass bottles out in the desert and target practice on them. Then I'll leave the shards where they lay. lol.

    Seriously, I just cannot get into the 'green' thing. I tried to a few years ago, but it didn't work out any too well.

    About 5 or 6 years ago, I decided to 'do my part' at cutting back on my carbon footprint, and began saving money to buy a solar system to put on my roof. In a few years, I had enough saved up to get a system that would generate enough electricity to cut my electric bill to almost zero.

    I had already installed a few such systems for the company I work for, (don't be fooled by all the techspeak, they're incredibly simple to design and install), so I designed my own. I got a few quotes that would meet my budget for material from several different suppliers.

    I called the power co. (since my system would backfeed their system, they have to approve it), no problems there. The person I talked to was knowledgeable and helpful.

    Looking good so far.

    Then I called the city building department. I was told that I'd need an engineers stamp on the drawings (that should have been a huge red flag, but....), so I had one of the engineers at the company I work for stamp it. So I submitted my drawings in order to get the building permit.

    I got a letter from the building department a few weeks later, it had a list of demands that had to be met before they'd issue the permit. The list had about 8 or 9 items on it, each item had 2 or 3 requirements.

    One or two items on the entire list actually had anything to do with my system. The rest were nothing more than a display of arrogant incompetence by the building official.

    I decided that I really didn't want my simple little $35,000 three weekend solar project to be turned into a $200,000 six month nightmare at the hands of yet another overbearing incompetent government agency.

    So, that was the end of my attempt at energy independence, and also very likely the end of anything 'green' that I'll ever do again.

    Re: Doing anything special on Earth Day (April 22)?

    I've been spending the day hugging trees, eating soy granola, walking around in Birkenstocks (with and without socks!), singing folk songs, and, um, uh, volunteering to feed homeless animals some vegan leftovers.

    Oh, all right, who am I kidding? I haven't done anything special. Hell, my A/C is still on at home, full blast. I like it chilly when I step in the door.
