Sure, it’s a Yukon Hybrid, but it’s also a massive beast that gets crappy mileage and is completely out of place in this photo. If HGTV were serious about making an impact with their green home giveaway package, they would have gone with a different sponsor and a smaller vehicle. Let’s hope that garage is deep.

    I’ve been trying to convince people that “greener” (as in a “greener, hybrid SUV” or a “greener house”) does not necessarily mean that it’s “green.” Was this house built on a “greenfield” piece of property or was it a site that had already been built on? It’s in the “Lowcountry”; does that mean wetland? Is it going to be underwater? Even they put quotation marks around “green home” on the website. Check out the link above to see the “Dream Home” site they built on last time around. Who are they trying to kid?

    This is more than a great start to a green future.
    I would dare say it is much more than some of the rude and negative comments from individuals on this site are able to do.

    One step at a time is better than no step at all.
