=v= I've been going to the Green Festival for years. Unlike so
many other ventures of this type, they actually emphasize things
that are actually good for the planet. Most other ventures are
greenwash festivals, peddling items with, say, a token swatch of
hemp fabric glued on them and calling them "green."
=v= Unfortunately, over the years, purveyors of dubious eco-cars
have gone from having a few demos sitting around into being the
event's major sponsors. This year it's Ford and Nissan, and in
San Francisco the only way to get a free admission pass is to
walk into a car dealership!
=v= This is the exact opposite of saving the planet. I will
not be attending this year.
