Hmmm ... it makes me wonder how many Friends or other environmentalists concerned about global warming and shoreline structures patronize the Swinomish gas station? If they do, I suppose they're the kind of environmentalists who reckon if they're going to contribute to global warming, they might as well do so at a great price while having a front-row view of sea-level rise as they fill up.
