My Homemade Hybrid campaign

(from my latest newsletter...)

What if I told you there was an easy and free way for car-drivers to instantly reduce their personal carbon emissions by 10-20%? Well, I'm about to. Last year (on or around Earth Day), I decided to do something. I kicked my idling habit. To my amazement, I started getting 30 more miles on every tank of gas by turning my car into a "homemade hybrid."

So, my latest obsession is spreading the word on the 10-second rule. (Read on, you may be tempted to try it yourself.) I just got an article published (yay!) at Celsias.com. If you'd like to help spread the word, you can even "hugg" the article, (which will help put it on the front page of treehugger.com, yee hah!)

I also created a website, complete with links for more information and funny, free window posters. Click the smoggy picture above to check it out. I do welcome comments on the site - even from skeptics!

Also, please join me in the National Day of Climate Action on April 14th! "Ten Seconds to Change"!

Here's to sanity, survival (and silliness, of course),

p.s. please forward this to anyone you think might care!

p.p.s. the ten-second rule does not apply to vintage cars--or cars that are already hybrids!
