There’s an interesting discussion going on at Worldchanging about the effectiveness of the latest “green” movement. I’ll refrain from going into too much detail with my thoughts, as they’re a bit jumbled on the subject at the moment. On the one hand, as a champion of the cause I think there’s a point to the thinking that any action, any publicity is good. On the other hand, I fear public backlash from overkill of “greenwashing” and green consumerism. Though in the end, I do believe the realities of our changing environment will render this discussion moot, and changes in the way we live will become necessities, and not lifestyle choices.
