    My refrigerator has a filter system and I buy reusable water bottles to use. We also bought solar power Christmas lights, and they work really well.

    Most of the schmucks I see moralising about petrol-guzzling cars also tend to eat red meat with almost every meal and won't drink any liquid, including water, that hasn't come out of a plastic bottle. They leave as many lights and appliances on as possible and live in box shaped McMansions with out so much vegetation as a single bonsai. I'd sort of get an evil kick out of provoking all the hypocrites who fancy themselves some kind of hippie just because it's trendy. They're just bourgeoisie in denial... it's as if half-heartedly buying "green" products and pretending you care is the new conspicuous consumerism.

    I rarely eat red meat, I drink tap water, I recycle, I (try) to grow plants, I turn lights off if I'm not in the room, etc. I do these things because I actually give a shit, not because I want everyone to admire how awesomely environmental I am. Unlike driving a Prius or having a sign on my lawn declaring "we use bore water!", no one will see those acts.
    You can do all that stuff, and, you know, not buy a Hummer too.

    So I suppose part of the reason I want a Hummer is just to take the piss out of the eco-phonies who act all greener-than-thou when it makes them look smarter/kinder/fashionable...I can be all like "Hey! My Hummer can run over your moral high horse, bitch!" Actually, I think I've just had an epiphany about myself here... brb, off to psychoanalyse myself.
    I actually don't think I've ever met an "eco-phony". Most people I know who live "green" do it because they're genuinely concerned about the environment... as you claim to be. They just also happen to go the extra mile of driving a sane and sustainable vehicle. But whatever helps you stick it to some hippies, I guess. That's clearly the larger moral imperative.

    Actually, I'm not sure. I think it's water they get from under the ground or something? *shrug*

    Or... I could buy a Hummer.

    Not that I'll be able to afford one anytime in the next decade or so. I might as well be weighing up the environmental cost of a Ferrari or a private jet.
