  1. Thanks for the great comment! I agree that the message needs to include downsizing. The “We’re going to hide all the green attributes” statement also made me sad. They should be proud of those green attributes.

    Alter Eco is a great show. I give Grenier a lot of credit for stepping full throttle into the arena with a show like this. He is courageously exposing himself to the dark green, often eco-elitist, community. It is always easy to criticize a show from the bleachers. Alter Eco has great ideas, shows most of the important eco-moves in action, and is a great way to reach a population less likely to do the research on their own.

    I like that Adrian brought up the guilt factor about living large right away. Unfortunately, as you pointed out, the important message behind the feelings was thrown out. We do need to think about decreasing our use of resources. Bigger is not always better and he doesn’t need a “water park” bathroom. Building a “water park” bathroom or even joking about it during severe droughts in California is in poor taste.

  2. I’ve never watched Entourage, but Adrian seems like a good guy. Good for him for appealing to hipsters/yuppies in this way. I agree with you that the developer is super slick, and he is transparent: money hungry, not really interested in being an environmentalist. I see the point he is making about the need to appeal to more materialistic yuppies, but I think part of the message has to be downsizing, not just the use of sustainable resources. How many gallons of water will be used in that room-sized shower if they shower every day??!
