On the earth, the green movement can mean something else. Forget that green plastic window grass. A year after the big fire on the hill above my house,  for example, everything is green. It is not, however, a story of renewal. Because of high-temperature fires in invasive grasses, it is a story of replacement. Look:

nowildTwo Native Plants, and 1,000 Invaders Have Reclaimed this small piece of burn.

Green can be a Bad Thing. These hills should be brown.

If you’re going to report on Green politics, remember: sometimes green is the wrong colour. Or, are you in the business of transferring slogans? A smart phone could do that.
