Re: E-M:/ Global Warming vs. Morality



There are a lot of extra issues Americans have to deal with before we can fully embrace doing the right thing for the environment. Too much of our history, culture, lifestyle and upbringing is opposed to conserving resources.  Here are some words that describe many American (subconscious?) feelings: (Readers of this email are excepted!)

 

·         entitled

·         unlimited resources

·         individualism

·         excess is good (food, cars, homes)

·         big is better

·         power and performance

·         quantity over quality

·         buy now, pay later

·         live beyond your mean

·         comfort

·         convenience

·         short sighted

·         greed

 

Add these and more to the list of obstacles environmentalists have to address
