It looks like the dream of the perfect eco-home will have to wait -- we're just not wealthy enough to afford it yet.
Isn't that always the way? Us idealists are stuck in the lower middle class, while those with enough money to affect real change just don't care.
Meanwhile, we're going to keep recycling, composting, taking public transit when we can't ride our bikes, conserving water and energy, and investing in wind, water, and solar power.
And when we build our pool, I've got plans for a solar heating system ready to go.
