Everyone Welcome to Challenge #1!
But first, check out today's NY Times op-ed page... Peter Doran is taking himself off of the list of scientists who dispute global warming. FYI, straight from the horse's mouth.
And, by the way, I'd just like to state that this blog is completely nonpartisan. I will happily support organizations, leaders, etc. from the right, left or anywhere in-between who will address this issue with innovative, real solutions. Though Environmentalism was once touted as a "liberal" issue, I'm pleased to report that this is no longer the case. Check out a few great Republican and non-partisan citizen groups, especially those of you in Texas, that are reaching out to Green Elephants and Donkeys everywhere!
OK, enough politcal chatter... Let the game begin (this is a "Reality Blog" after all... everyone wants to know: Where are the challenges?!)
Between August 1, 2006 and February 1, 2007: Whoever uses the fewest gallons of gas wins! Those of you with a hybrid car have a head start and those of you with SUV's will just have to drive fewer miles. Everyone can play... let the game begin! Keep us updated on your progress. There may be prizes!
Coming up... Ethanol, Biodesiel, Plug-in Hybrids, and Hydrogen Fuel Cells: What will really work?
