    Green is environmentalism, not conservation. Recycling is conservation, something almost forgotten today despite conservation being dominant until the 1980s. Green means using multiple times the resources and energy of doing something the standard way. It normally means many times the pollution as well, when manufacturing and maintenance are factored in. Examples are solar and large-scale windpower, both of which consume enormous resources in their manufacture, produce tremendous amounts of pollution in their manufacture, and are net energy losses when the manufacturing and maintenance are counted.

    Better on the green than still stuck on the fairway or in the sand trap.

    Recycling is usually a BLUE box, so Rodney, the King would have been turned into a Smurf.

    The sad part is that Nabqud is correct in his observation about “green”. Take “wind power” as an example. In the rural West US wind turbines won’t make enough power over their lifetime to pay for putting them up. We have hydro power that far more cost effective.

    @Nabuquduriuzhur

    Nah, anything perceived as being good for the environment is considered GREEN. Therefore conservation would be under the green umbrella.
    .
    Personally, as wizard, I would have gone with a green Martian like Tars Tarkas, but a frog is more in keeping with standard magic concepts.

    Vestas says that even under low wind conditions 8.6 months are sufficient to repay the energy required to build a wind turbine with a return of 28 times over 20 years.
    .
    In contrast, solar needs 3.2 years to break even. To be ultimately green, the wizard needs a spell to extract energy directly from sunlight or moving air or water without physical mechanisms like dams, turbines, panels.
    .
    Of course that might be the source of his magical power in the first place.

    As a famous philosopher once said, “It’s not that easy being green…”

    Not to mention how many migratory birds they kill.
    We just can’t seem to find enough ways to damage the planet and all its inhabitants!
