I have been subscribed to emailed news from a dot-org that is working in the area where I happen to agree we need a breakthrough in order to salvage our planet and our lives...the nexus where our personal options and incentive's connect to sustainable action at all scales is the economy.  It is my emphasis that an orientation toward sustainable life choices is a new morality to benefit both personal and environmental outcomes, a morality that simply quits denying how deeply those are connected.

That is my understanding of being "green" and it is not some light or lately aquired fashion statement.

If you have read this far, you may get something out of reading J Andrew Hoerner's commentary.
