I find it odd that on a environmentalist forum, people selfishly engage in such gluttonous behavior, and lack of attention to the environment. Gas-guzzling vehicles? Are you mad? I'm beginning to think that the only reason people who post here is just to be apart of a group -- to engage in socialization instead of focusing on the issue (although this is an open forum, but to deny environmentalism outright?)
Do you only have this belief only in environmentalism when it is convenient, and therefore not have a passion for it as I do? I guess the word "ideology" has no significance.
You should all be ashamed of yourselves.
Because clearly, what we need in the environmental movement is more judgementalism. You are definitely doing your part to help win the hearts and minds of the masses... keep up the good work! That tactic has done wonders for the Catholic Church and should continue to do well for the environmental movement. "You are all damned to hell, now here's how you get your ticket out..." Perhaps you should do an ecological footprint analysis and then burn anyone at the stake who has a greater footprint than you! Or even better, perhaps you could travel the world in a biodiesel vehicle and convert all that you come in contact with. If anyone refuses to accept The Word then kill them! You'd get lots of converts and control the world's population at the same time!
Oh good grief!
I get so disheartened when I see such strident examples of everything that is wrong in the environmental movement. There really are some of us who try to lead by example WITHOUT bashing others over the head with it (even though I do love to gloat about my 55+ mpg hybrid at the very hint of talking to someone who drives an SUV).
Seriously, if you want to change society's behavior patterns, learn about some more effective ways of doing it. Telling people how much they suck is usually not the best way to make friends and influence people.
ps- you do
all suck though and I am right about everything!
