This is the year of global warming, of carbon footprints, of realizing that we're on the slippery slope toward environmental oblivion unless we start making some very hard, very drastic and very expensive choices.
I recall when Earth Day was huge around 1989-90. It was a big fad to get involved, clean up a park somewhere on a Sunday morning with other like-minded do-gooders while local TV news crews shot b-roll footage of the volunteers in their snappy new t-shirts. Then it just vanished, another victim of pop culture burnout.
I hope we've learned our lesson in the intervening years. Doubtful, but you never know.
