I am in the process of learning more about Green homes and building. There is a lot of resource here in Olympia/Seattle area. Of course, with any new trend, there are questions about what is actually best for the environment our health, and what is discovered to have little or unexpected effect!
Speaking of cars, I drive a 1991 Cadillac Sedan Deville. Some people think I drive it for political or status reasons. I do, but those people would be surprised at what those reasons are...
I get 30.1mpg on the highway(I have to stay under 60mph to do it) and between 22 and 18mpg in town.
The car was built 17 years ago, so no recent mining or manufacturing was necessary to keep me on the road.
I bought the car used, for cash, so it is recycled. No money went to finance companies, either.
It is American made, so I had no part in trade, tariffs, or using fuels to bring the car into this country.
I have had seeing eye dogs, deaf clients with interpreters, handicapped clients with crutches & walkers, and client family members with oxygen equipment ride in this car.
Thanks for listening!
