'Big' goverment?- 41 billion into oil subsidies, I think yes. However, most of the time the government allows bad things to happen, rather than cause problams.
Greedy business + industry?- Yep. They are the reasons why government isn't doing anything.
The public in general, due to lack of empathy?- Absolutely. They are the reason why greedy businesses do well.
Or the whole human race; if one believes modern living is simply impossible to make compatable with mother nature?- We are nature. We can live good lives and cause minimal harm to the envrionment. It's true that the way we live causes problems, but if we went back to the stone age, we still would be harming the environment, although not to the extreme.
Holy crap this was over 3 years ago.
