What got you interested in green living?

The movie 'An Inconvenient Truth' was what did it for me. It was like the scene in 'The Matrix' when Neo chooses the red pill! Now I see the world as it really is - and it's kind of scary.

What aspect of green living are you interested in learning more about?

How come the pie charts of the main sources of greenhouse gas emissions never show diet or agriculture, but the United Nations FAO report in 2007 found that meat-based diets caused 18% of all greenhouse gasses - more than all of transportation?

In what ways do you live a green lifestyle or how do you help the planet earth?

Mainly: advocacy! If we don't change society (through politics) - nothing else matters! Vegan diets, clotheslines, conserving energy IS NOT ENOUGH. I maintain www.baltimoreclimate.org and am organizer of the Baltimore Environment Meetup Group.

What is your current diet type and are you interested in a healthier diet?

Vegan since December 2007, and food has never been more delicious. (Tip: when you fry onions - don't stir them). Everyone should read 'The China Study' - will blow you away about health effects of meat, and very scientific.

We require your photo. Would you please post your photos in your profile?
