"Queer Eye for the Green Guy"

Grist magazine adds to the "Seventies Environmentalism is Dead" meme with an article suggesting that green activists need more fashion sense:

If environmentalism is dead, then that ratty sweater has to go, too. Ditto for sandals as everyday footwear -- only one man ever pulled off that look, and that was during King Herod's reign. One more thing: piling your dreads under that knit cap makes your head look like a Jiffy Pop about to explode. Yeah, I'm talking to you, environmentalists. It's time to keep up appearances.

Predictably, not all readers were impressed (scroll down).
