Wow! I’m almost at 90 comments now for my last post, in which I got down on my green knees and begged you dear readers for help in finding a book title. I can’t thank you enough, they were all great.
Unfortunately, my publishers — who I love, by the way, don’t get me wrong — still haven’t decided on anything, but I’ll let you know as soon as possible what the winning words are.
In the mean time, as Crunchy already mentioned, I recently wrote about her and Sharon‘s posts on how men and women approach peak oil. Ah, but I didn’t write about it here. Instead, it was for the National Post — specifically, the Footprint page — where I now have a column called Sense & Sustainability (now that’s a good title, eh?).
Normally, I wouldn’t cross-promote myself because it’s more than a bit self-indulgent. However, the Footprint site is decent, and while I’m unfortunately pretty crap at updating Green as a Thistle on a regular basis, I do often write about cool stuff for the Post, such as environmental do-gooding in politically torn regions like the Middle East and the feral fruit phenomenon (thanks for that tip, Chile!). You can even scroll through the videos and watch me doing silly things like jumping out of Jacob‘s dad’s apple tree (I was desperate for a shooting location… Oh, and the berries I thought were blackberries might actually be loganberries, at least according to my mother… and my mother is always right).
So go forth! Read about how some crazy Brits are recycling water in Beit Sahour, how a couple of Toronto guys put on a comedy show called An Inconvenient Musical, how easy it is to make a feral fruit map, and more. Maybe browse the Ampersand and the Appetizer ’cause they’re OK, too, but don’t waste your time on any of that right-wing editorial nonsense. Just come straight back here and give me more title suggestions!
