It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood

I'm headed outside to enjoy this beautiful day. If you live somewhere that the sun is not shining, check out this series that NPR did called "Consumed" - it's an attempt to answer the question "is the consumer economy sustainable?" There are thirty-five different segments that look at all different angles of the consumer economy. You can listen to the broadcast or read the transcripts.

There's also a really cool game you can play that tells you how many of our planets it would take to support the earth's population if everybody lived the lifestyle that you do - I know I was surprised at my results. All that flying takes a toll!
