What an obnoxious channel this is! Problem: We need to water our lawn and landscaping in the Pacific northwest. Planet Green's Solution: Install a water catchment system that empties into a cistern in the basement from which the sprinkler system can draw water. The Real Solution: Minimize lawn space and landscape with drought-resistant native plants that that don't need watering. Mind you these people live in Seattle, not the Sonoran desert. Problem: Our newly purchased house is too small. Planet Green's Solution: Rather than raise the roof on this historic Craftsman house, why not raise it six feet off its foundation and build underneath it? The Real Solution: Buy the house that fits your family and leave the historic house alone rather than make it look ridiculous by raising it far above its neighboring houses. Green living tip bumper: "Ladies, do you really need to wash your hair every day? Why not sweep it into a fashionable updoo?" They even have a show, Hollywood Green, about how celebrities are doing their part to live green by going on African safari in hybrid SUVs. I love these interviews with people who feel their need to confess deep guilt for not being green enough. And don't miss the sweepstakes where you can win a tour of Ed Begley, Junior's new green home as you enjoy the filming of his green living reality series. This is the single most obnoxious channel I have ever seen. It's ecoporn of the worst sort; demonstrating how people can be profligate with energy and resources in the most, "efficient," manner. I like green architecture. I like saving energy. What I don't like is being guilted into not washing my hair, or thinking that a heated Japanese toilet seat with built-in hot water bidet is going to save any more resources than using toilet paper (they don't even allow it in the bathroom) from recycled sources. The proximity sensing faucets in the same bathroom never put out enough water, don't always sense the presence of your hands, you can't adjust the temperature, and that little electric eye is a constant electricity drain that may well use more resources than the miniscule amount of water it will save. The real kicker was the ultra-water saving Navy-style shower that releases pre-measured amounts of water in spurts so that the shower isn't always running while you're in it. Can you spot the swimsuit made entirely of sustainable materials? asks one spot. So long as it isn't that ugly one in the middle apparently made of burlap, I don't care! Planet Green will quickly make conservation into another fad of conspicuous consumption. It asks the perverse question of who has the most expensive hairshirt?
