Mice alter their environment too.
Conservation and recycling and lowering our footprint is a good idea in general, and appeals to a conservative like me. So some of the green movement would be so appealing...
But most of it appears to just be a power/ money grab.
If Al Gore lived in a modest house and teleconferences instead of jetting all over the world, it would make more sense to me. He is just the poster boy, all the 'green' groups are the same as him.....
The 'Green' folks aren't leaving a smaller footprint, better world, they just use any temperature change for their own goals of power and money.
So as you say, nothing is going to change.
And as we are born with self preservation, really it would be quite odd for anything to actually change? Only way to really change course, if for the population to shock downward drastically.
And how do we accomplish that, morally?
Anyhow, I am for better energy sources, better conservation, but I find most all folk talking that talk to be very two faced worms.
