Tonight several people sent me a text message asking what I was doing. I replied: Trying to make a silk purse from a sow’s ear. They had no clue what I meant. It’s an old Hindu idiom.
Trying to fool people into thinking a dirty fossil fuel is clean energy is trying to turn a silk purse into a sow’s ear. Putting lipstick on a pig has the same meaning.
I think I came closer to the silk purse than the Big Gas Mafia. What do you think?
