I know your deeds; you have a reputation of being alive, but you are dead. Wake up! Strengthen what remains and is about to die, for I have not found your deeds complete in the sight of my God.
I rarely mention environmental issues on my blog, although they play a big part in my life and the decisions I make. Today, though, I would like to point out an excellent article in The Seattle Times on why we don’t carpool. We don’t carpool, the writer says, because:
- We’re spoiled
- We’re set in our ways
- We don’t trust other drivers with our lives
- We don’t know the true cost of commuting alone
The writer candidly discusses her own reasons for driving a gas guzzler, and concludes that maybe when gas gets just a little more expensive, she’ll consider carpooling.
I highly recommend the article. As you read it, ask yourself: Do I have any truly compelling reasons for not finding an alternative, more pocketbook- and environmentally-friendly way of commuting?
