Environmentalism today is changing to CFLs, signing a petition here or there and generally being dissatisfied with the government’s lethargic pace on environmental protection.
Environmentalists say they want to move beyond the status quo — our biggest enemy, the one that gave us inefficient homes, gas guzzling automobiles and clothing made in countries we can’t even locate on a map — but we still abide by it. We still get our power from coal. We still drive. We still buy clothes made in the Philippines.
In the presidential debates, global warming has hardly been discussed, and the one time I’ve seen, it was presented as a joke. Does this video really inspire people to think differently about the climate crisis?
