Thanks for sending these URLs - very interesting.

According to the Footprint quiz, I require 5.2 planets.  I wonder if they
would throw in the extra .8 planet to make it 6!  Seriously, even though I
consider my lifestyle to be somewhat sustainable, I really know that it
isn't sustainable at all!  It should be some consolation to me that most
people in the US live as I do, but in reality, it scares the hell out of

As far as Sustainable Pittsburgh, I'm glad to see that Alan AtKisson is
hard at work.  His book, "Believing Cassandra" is a real eye opener, but
with a positive spin.
