I met a lot of tree sitters that protested the building of the M-5 in England. Didn't do any good. The trees were all knocked down anyway.

Win a few lose a few. I am full of admiration for those who are willing to make their lives about change. They deserve all the support and publicity those of us still pursuing the dollar can muster. Perhaps it should become common practice that a vacation means not jetting off to some high carbon resort to indulge our gluttony but taking part in some sort of direct action to bring about change. Use the time and money otherwise spent on frivolity to build a solar hot water heater, lobby congress, plant a veggie garden, or sit in a tree.
