    Everytime this guys writes one of his columns lecturing us about going green the Times should have a picture of his estate next to the column:

    yeah - imagine how many trees they had to cut down to build that place.

    Friedman frequently seems an epic, privileged asshole -- no argument, there.

    Doesn't denigrate the basic pro-Green posture, though.
     
  5. For Boom, it does.

    Obviously Friedman does not buy into the green argument as evidence by his estate. Why should he expect everyone else to go green.

    His estate looks pretty green to me, to be honest.

    Even if your math teacher is a dick, 1+1=2.

    Obviously? Really?

    You can tell he's not put tons of insulation into his home by that photo? You can tell he's not using tankless water heaters or geo-thermal heating and cooling? You can tell R values of the windows? Or the number of CFL or LED lightbulbs? You can tell whether he recycles or buys carbon offsets?

    Boom, what the fuck does the size of Friedman's estate have to do with being "green".

    Do you even know what it means?

    For all anyone knows, Friedman's place is completely self sufficient and leaves less of a carbon footprint than your Hummer.
