This is that green myth that is perpetuated by the environmental mental midgets who can't or
won't see the realities that confront us. They constantly believe that they can just change the
course of everything and we will just have to accept that. The problem is they appear to know
nothing about human nature. If they tried that without taking people and their aspirations into
account that would be the undoing of their movement if not society itself.
Of course we can't cut dependency on oil, second we can't go back to using horses for farming
and Good God, we are not going to suddenly all embrace the world of green. What cars are now
selling and who is buying the muscle cars, Mustangs the Challengers and Chargers Corvettes and
the like? People from their mid twenties to mid forties, and they don't give a damn about horse
power or fuel. That is merely an example, its about lifestyle, and short of a major depression
economically that won't change for a long time.
Green is a concept in the mind it has nothing to do with reality in the mainstream and the reason is
we as a society, pay lip service to the concept, but in private we do nothing. Business chimes in
about Green and the new way for the planet. In reality, they can increase their profit margins by
claiming organic, or environmentally friendly. Its all lip service.
These examples are merely a taste of the reality out there, so we will be dependent on energy and
water, food policy, and other things. The reason I say other things is we are interdependent on this
planet. The world is made up of various economic systems and states of progress. You can be as
green as you like, but if the third world is polluting we are no better off. The idea is so simplistic
and full of holes its hard to believe some people think we can do this this century let alone within the
time frame laid out here.
