June 5 is World Environment Day

Yes, today is another United Nations special -- World Environment Day. This year, the theme of World Environment Day (you have celebrated them all since 1972, haven't you?) is the "Green Economy."

As near as I can tell, in the green economy, we won't have to give up our lifestyle, but whatever we do to produce that lifestyle will pollute so little that our carbon footprint will be baby-bootie sized. In other words, green is the color of pipe dreams.

And none of the pipes will spew carbon dioxide.

But, hey, it's good to have a goal. So hug a tree or two tonight on your way to the local. And, maybe, tonight, after you've sipped a refreshing beverage or two, you'll come up with an idea that will make all of this possible. Just make sure someone's taking notes.
