I spent Labor Day weekend on an emotional roller coaster.And elsewhere on the Internet:
Without digging too deeply into my political opinions (because I believe that environmentalism can and should be a bipartisan endeavor), let me just say that it started with a certain news channel launching a smear campaign against one of my green heroes. I was pissed off.
:: David Roberts from Grist tried to set the record straight on Van Jones, and then posted some thoughts on his resignation. My sentiments exactly.
:: Peppermags found a great video about the White House Garden, including commentary by the First Lady.
:: No Impact Man takes a position on the stunt or no stunt question. And in other No Impact news, Beavan's wife Michelle weighs in on the year with no toilet paper.
:: Greening Families lists seven benefits to going green - some I wouldn't have thought of.
:: Bob Herbert at the New York Times says the U.S. is having a nervous breakdown. We need therapy.
:: Fake Plastic Fish announces that I am the winner of the No Impact Man book giveaway. I'm so stoked!...But really, I'm trying to tell you that you should join in her book discussion with me.
(Looks like most of my interest this week was divided between my green heroes Van Jones and No Impact Man. Don't worry, hubby, you still have my heart!)
I'm now using Twitter to keep track of my noteworthy green reads. If you'd like instant knowledge of what I find interesting, you can find me on Twitter as consciousshoppr.
