In case you didn't notice, yesterday was Earth Day.
I'm convinced that there's som sort of unwritten rule that at least 99% of the population is forbidden from thinking about the planet, the environment, and the effects that we have on them EXCEPT on this day.
What did I do in honor of Earth Day? Not a heck of a lot. I walked to lunch instead of jumping in my car (it was raining, and I didn't have an umbrella). When I got home, I kept most of the lights off at home (I've got CFL bulbs anyway, so this wasn't a big contribution to the health of the planet). And at one point I considered trying to find a source of scrap/broken solar panels, salvaging what was usable, and making refurb solar panels (hard to lookup when you don't have internet access at home).
