From George Ure's blog today (http://urbansurvival.com/week.htm):
"If you want to solve most of the world's growing list of environmental issues, here's a dandy - simple solution: Have everyone start working 3-days a week. All of a sudden, greenhouse gases, energy depletion, and all kinds of other problems become manageable. Focus on the stuff that matters: gardening, reading, personal relationships...forget the dollar mania! Let crooked banks fail - the country made it through the crisis in the past, and we will again."
I think he's on to something, seriously.
