Greener Than Thou: Some Solar Something on Valencia

New, 2 comments

Greener Than Thou is our report on San Francisco’s obsession with all things green, calling bullshit in the poseurs and lavishing praise on those who have secured their place in environmental paradise. Nominees, holler!

With all of the pretty prefabs and LEED saints about town, it's been easy to hand out compliments on Greener Than Thou lately (yes, even for us). That is, until this reader hit "send:"

Just when I thought those Missionites couldn't get any more out of hand with the D.I.Y. bikes made of copper pipe and melted Vans, I spotted this puppy outside of Community Thrift on Valencia on Saturday. The hipster aboard knew he'd fallen between the crosshairs, and sat there like a deer in headlights as I snapped away from across the street. It looks like a rickshaw had an orgy with a fleet of construction equipment and the PG & E solar installation team. Somebody? Anybody?
