Environmentalism in the Real World


I noticed a woman yesterday wearing a green “Stop Global Warming” bracelet. This would have been unremarkable had she not been sitting a few rows in front of me on a flight home from the Thanksgiving holiday. Well, at least she was flying commercial. Who knows how many global warming worriers were flying home in private jets. Oh, and did I mention she was wearing Ugg® boots–”the premier brand in luxury and comfort”–complete with sheepskin uppers, rubber soles, and manufactured in China and Australia. Yes indeed, those Ugg®s were well traveled even before they walked onto that Southwest flight.
