|I'm getting over my grudge against zipcar. We had a car all day today, and we were able to go away this past weekend, and then, when we were done, we were able to park it in its spot 2 blocks away from hte house, and then watch An Inconvenient Truth with the knowledge that we do our part by sharing cars, taking public transit, riding bikes, walking, recycling, buying energy efficient light bulbs, etc. E wants to write some letters tomorrow (we had fun drafting one to georgie pordgy), and J is going to be President. Really, this family, on its own, can lick global warming. Leave it all to us.
We didn't even really digest the fact that it was earth day until we were done with the movie.
The movie started to freak J out, especially since she's already the one who gets mad at us about global warming - having all the details spelled out for her created some tension. Until the end, when they talked about how it's fixable, and when we talked about how honestly, global warming is becoming a part of the national dialog. Things are looking up.
And as of today, I plan on staying a zipster for a long, long, long time (until hybrids get a little better, to be precise).
