I had a friend who was very proud of herself by "going green" and buying a hybrid car. Guess she failed to remember that our power comes from a plant that burns coal to generate our electricity.

geez scott. You really like poking hornets nests with sticks don't you? This is like lobbing a bag of frenchfries into the middle of a !$%*!$%*!$%*!$ meeting, then sitting back and watching the carnage.

thats why serious ecologists and long term thinking economists talk about "sustainable" instead of "green". You can debate endless what is "green" and what isnt, and that any kind of technology isnt "green" as in "green". But sustainable is quite logical and easy. Sustainable means, you not basing upon using up limited resource pools, farming so soil doesnt detoriate, not piling up waste into containers, etc. And you are not destroying on ressources that you need on otherwhere (poising water etc).

Otherwise this strip is a "reduction ad absurum", meaning you take one over the top claim like dilberts, to debunk all of it.

What if the world situation changes to the point where we all have to go "chartreuse"?
