I like the point about idling. When you pop into the corner store to buy your milk, etc. turn off your vehicle. People shouldn't be surprised if their car is stolen while they just "pop in for a minute." Even when I pick up the kids in winter, if I know that I have to wait for them, I'll dress appropriately so that I can turn off the engine.
Yeah... I turn my car off while waiting for a long train to pass by & also while waiting in line at a fast-food restaurant like Taco Bell if the line is long.... I've heard there's a "One minute Rule" that means If you're going to be idling for more than one minute, it takes less gas to restart your car than you'd use sitting there idling, so go ahead & turn it off while you wait.
-- Also, why use a whole paper towel when half of one will do?
And after I read this I happened to turn around, hold please while I turn off the light.
Its easier to be green then people might think, just make sure you talk about it to others and get them thinkign too.
