I remember that Meryn once stated that slow was a keyword of our future. It seems he was right as Treehugger published a most interesting article on that phenomenon.
With slow food, homes, cities, travels, flying (!), design, fashion and cars, my guess is that taking one’s time will indeed be a cool green thing in the quite near future.
The great thing with going slowly is that you consume less energy, and thus emit less greenhouse gases. A very nice idea.
