EcoGeek on Wired's Environment Issue

Wired's latest issue is kind of sad, really. While I generally enjoy the magazine, sometimes they try just a little too hard. Their cover story is "Inconvenient Truths: Get Ready to Rethink What it Means to Be Green", which shocks "environmentalists" by claiming you can keep your SUV and run your A/C while eating non-organic food and you'll do more for the environment. It's not just that I disagree with the premise, it's that they are aiming to seem edgy and heretical when they're really just being boring and contrary. There isn't a single original idea in the article.

Anyway, I was planning to write my own rebuttal, but EcoGeek already did the job pretty well, if briefly. Check it out.
