Two Years Ago In TreeHugger: Things To Come


It was so easy writing for TreeHugger two years ago. Sweaters, clothing, a serious number of handbags, all this stuff was shiny and new and we could fill it with fashion and accessories. LEDs were new as well, and I was able to infuriate our readers with LED cuff links and slippers.

However there were indicators of issues that now dominate the site, squeezing out most of the hemp shirts and bamboo handbags: Questions like Are McMansions going out of Style? And news like Bicycle sales are exploding and Popularity of Public Transportation increasing in the US, and of course, Mike's advice that we Drive the Speed Limit.

But my favourite remains Bob Lutz of GM quoted in the Wall Street Journal about fuel prices: "Rich people don't care."
