Writers Spotlight: Featuring Chris DeArmond (Part 2)

Posted on the 01 February 2013 by 2ndgreenrevolution @2ndgreenrev

Here is the second installment of Chris DeArmond’s answers to questions the 2nd Green Revolution editorial staff asked him about sustainability. This is part of a new feature we are running to bring you information about our writers.

6) When you go shopping….paper, plastic, or cloth? Why?

A: I’m really bad about remembering to bring in my bag. When I forget, I usually go with plastic since I reuse the bags. Plus, if they don’t wind up as litter, plastic bags are supposed to have a smaller impact on the environment that paper bags.

7) What are your thoughts on the Keystone pipeline?

A: I’m often torn on energy issues since they affect people across the country in varying degrees. For me, the price of gas isn’t as big of a deal because I don’t drive too frequently or own a business that is sensitive to oil prices. But the reality is that a lot of people do. With that said, I’m still leaning towards no on the pipeline just because extracting oil from tar sands is dirty business. I’d be much more inclined to support other non-renewable projects before the Keystone pipeline.

8) Are you attending any green-related events in the near future?

A: I’m going to the DC Auto Show in February. It’s not necessarily a “green” event, but there’s bound to be something.

9) What is your favorite post that you’ve written for 2nd Green?

A: The Tesla Model S review. It was fun to try to convey my impressions by reliving that moment.

10) What is one simple eco-practice that you follow religiously and think everyone else should do, too?

A: I never litter. What gets to me is that it really just comes down to laziness. It always baffles me when I see trash at the beach or in a park.
