How Green are you today? Tomorrow?

Today is a blog publishing day! Hooray! And for a change of pace, I ran into this video about a scooter from Piaggio - they call it MP3. No it doesn't play music but it sure looks like it sings! Its got 3 wheels.

Its a little bit spendy ($7K) but a trick little machine. The video runs about 4 1/2 minutes. If you want to read about it - this is the spot. All sorts of video here, too.

I'm a tree hugger - plus I sing folk songs and bluegrass. This little vehicle has been around all year and I'm only just now seeing it? A quick Google search returned blogger postings beginning May 2006.

I know its impossible to keep track of everything - but how can we expect to change the world (and help preserve Mother Earth) when cool items like this seem to be secrets? Is it marketing - intentional or poor? Is it failure of mass media? Is it only a US phenomenon? I'm curious - feel free to rant if you choose.
