Video Transcript:

Green, nowadays, is a word to market all kinds of nasty things that, because unwary people, you know, try to do the right thing, and if they hear the word green they equate that with being environmentally friendly.  I think green should be a trigger to each of us that says I need to investigate this carefully, and once I know for sure what they’re doing actually is positive for the environment, then be a faithful consumer of that particular thing.

On the other hand, just because you put a label, green, on a house or a car or anything else doesn’t make it green.  It doesn’t make it environmentally friendly.  As a matter of fact, many extremely nasty things are running around under the guise of green.
