Going Green Tips #2 and #3

#2 Nag your parents.

From Meet the Greens, “WGBH's online series The Greens gives kids a fun primer on sustainability and green living”, we discover ways to convince doubting parents of the righteousness of going green.

#3 Scare your kids.

Here is what the Green dudes report as “pretty cool” numbers; they might as well call them Numbers of Shame and stop beating around the bush – that can’t be good for the bush, which is probably green. Not as scary as Professor Schpinkee’s Greenhouse Calculator (because no one gets to be as fat as a hog and blow up!), The Greens Carbon Calculator presents leading questions designed to make the respondent feel guilty about, if not despise his standard of living.

I guess these guys didn’t get the “hope over fear” message yet.
