Misanthropy and activism dont seem like they go hand in hand, yet they do. For instance, you might care passionately about the environment and yet find the concept of enforced contact with strangers repugnant. Well, lets hope your passion for nature, and specifically for the oceans, is greater than your dislike for your fellow man, because Hands Across the Sand wants you to form a literal line in the sand to stop offshore oil drilling. On Saturday, the movement that started here in Florida, the home of offshore drilling and offshore drilling hate, is hoping to spread its arms and movement worldwide. Despite the gratuitous hand holding, this is environmental activism in three easy steps. Step 1: Like-minded environmentalists meet on the beach at 11 a.m. in their time zone, regardless of weather conditions. Step 2: Activists hold hands for 15 minutes, forming a symbolic line in the sand. (Misanthropes and germaphobes, bring hand sanitizer, and think of the dolphins.) Step 3: Leave only your footprints behind. In other words, take your cigarette butts and empty Purell bottles with you.
