Next Time You See Oprah, Turn Off Your Television

I just caught a brief glimpse of an Oprah Winfrey show with special guest Al Gore. The crux of the show was that we need to be more green in our lives by making small changes which result in noticeable & positive net effects. “Time is of the essence.”

I encourage everyone… Anytime you hear someone on television claim we need to go green, turn your television off. Frankly, I’m curious if they’d still want you to go green even after their ratings plummeted due to the active energy conservation of shutting off the teli.

I have nothing against environmentalism. I believe in being actively wise in how resources are consumed. I further believe that part of what we will be held accountable before God is our stewardship of what He has created.

And if celebrities want to push “greenness” through their multiple-million dollar productions which likely consume more resources than I’ll use in a year (if not several years) to plan, produce, and market… Well, I’m not buying it, and you shouldn’t either.
