    The going green article is inter­esting. Few people seem to consider that consump­tion is consump­tion, regard­less of how much you “use” on the back end.

    It could probably be argued that keeping my current car (a 2002 Mazda) is actually better than buying a new “fuel-efficient” vehicle. The fact is, the car I have is perfectly func­tional. It doesn’t have any major problems that require constant repairs and it gets me from place to place.

    If I went out to buy a new Prius, I’d be buying a Prius just for the sake of buying it. My old car could be sold to someone else (who would likely keep driving it) or it could be junked. Neither of those solutions is going to make any kind of impact on the environment.

    But I do get a new car and an oppor­tu­nity to brag about how I’m saving the world, so at least that’s something.
