Our list of environmental goodies, oddities, and inanities

We thought about being earnest this Earth Day — compiling some sort of inspiring list of in-the-trenches eco-heroes who need recognition and encouragement — but then we remembered: we’re Grist. So we bring you instead a capricious rundown of our favorite highs, lows, and wacky bits of the last year. Who’s the hottest eco-model? The mustachiest geo-green? What’s the kinkiest eco-innovation? The most self-defeating anti-Kyoto argument? Survey our superlatives to find out, then add your own ideas in Gristmill.
