The Marin IJ is running two polls today, one concerning employing illegal immigrants and the other asking whether “most Marin residents are environmental posers.” As to the latter, with 375 votes cast, 82% of voters have answered that, yes, Marin residents are environmental posers. I was vote number 375 in that regard. It’s a good question, because it taps into the feel goodism that is the core of Al Gore’s Nobel Prize winning environmental theories. Like Al, we live in our big houses, drive our big cars, and consume like mad, but we are still careful tol put our kids into a panic about their future, dutifully sort our garbage, use recyclable shopping bags, and are sure to lecture everyone about the evils of climate change. If that’s not posing, I don’t know what is.
