Nickel and Dimed and Al Gore

Al Gore movie

I had a couple of days off and received this book from Franny. I started reading it and could not stop. So much of this book is so true that you owe it to yourself to get it and read the damn thing. I also finally got a chance to watche Al Gore's movie on Global Warming. It would be senseless to make comments on this blog about it since most readers here are cyclists and are aware of what is going on. It the gluttons with the Mc Mansions and the 14 ton SUVS that need the wake up call. I hope at some point these issues start to become more obvious and that we get out of our blind consumerism and start caring about what is important. In Berlin, Germany old cars that are not certified to be Gas Efficient are not allowed in the city. All energy efficient cars have a special sticker and if you don't have on on your 1981 Buick you cannot drive it in the city limits. After you get done reading Nickel and Dimed make sure to tip the waitress at your diner well because her livelihood depends on it.
