The problem is that people do not see much of the more creeping and insidious environmental pollution and degradation like greenhouse gases (climate change), agricultural nitrate runoff (algae blooms-dead zones), destruction of biodiversity, etc.

People are too fat and comfortable to disrupt the status quo by switching to green industries and by having a lifestyle different to what is expected as a red-blooded American.

If you can't see it, it costs something up front, and could be painful, why do it?

If I have summarize environmentalism in the United States: Talk is cheap.

I am disappointed in humanity.

Doesn't Brazil already have cars that don't use gas. I think they have it for ten years already. This is not Rocket Science.

The logic that people will change their fuel-consuming habits by raising prices is counter-intuitive.

If you want to change someone's behavior, find an alternative that is CHEAPER.

Why not take the money that is being used for carbon cap-and-trade legislation and policies and instead spend it researching and developing alternative energy sources to make them cheaper sooner so people will WANT to switch?
