Alternet helped celebrate Earth Day by inviting readers to nominate grassroots environmental heroes. (They were inspired to do so in reaction to Vanity Fair‘s “green” issue which focused exclusively on the rich and famous in the environmental movement. Well, it is Vanity Fair after all.)
Lo and behold, among all the many terrific people nominated and the handfull chosen by Alternet to profile, there’s Diane. It shouldn’t be a surprise, since she is definitely heroic, but it is a great pleasure to see her recognized.
[Margo asked a good question: why are so many of those profiled women? Yo, menfolk, outta yer SUVs! The world needs your calm, patient, dedicated, long-term energies.]
