I know I'm gonna get blasted for this but here's my two cents worth on the enviroment. How much is too much effort? I mean I'm a pretty concious person, I take 8 minute showers, I don't turn lights on when I dont have to, and I compost. Sometimes, though, I think alot of enviromentalists, instead of encouraging you, condemn you for the tinest things. I was driving through my town in a impala and I stopped by this enviromental group stand to donate some money.... the first thing the girl said when I got out of the car was to tell me how much of a gas guzzler it was... jc, its not even a SUV. I don't need to be preached to about conservation by some 18 year old high school girl. So instead of donating, I was like... "**** that" and left. it's one thing to be aware, its another to be an zealot.
