"Green"... It's Not JUST A Lifestyle... It's The Color Of Money

Did you know that many of Greenpeace's directors and staff have gone on to work for the timber, whaling, and other commercial interests that rape the environment?

Not that this hypocritical behavior is solely the domain of organizations and companies with direct monetary interest in the outcome of government policy... Consumers reflect this trend as well.
Code Green - Eco-HypocrisyThe hypocrisy often associated with going green can be understood best by looking at the early history of the environmental movement. Early activists focused almost exclusively on the moral component while ignoring economic realities. The moral outrage was completely understandable. We were fouling our own nest and as a society indifferent to our plight. Who can forget the searing images of smokestacks spewing poison into the air or mountains of trash spoiling our lands or dead fish floating in the cesspool of rivers so polluted they caught fire? With this undeniable evidence of our wanton disregard for the environment, we were made to feel guilty for our consumption,

shamed into caring about our natural resources. We viewed conservation as a sacrifice, a burden to be tolerated, something difficult and inconvenient that had to be done.

That approach can be effective initially, and in fact was, but guilt has no staying power... [More]

Green is the Color of Money

[Pop Out Player]
As environmentalism becomes mainstream, corporations and well funded environmental organizations work hand in hand to divert the public’s efforts into market driven solutions.

With runaway climate change looming in the horizon, we must ask ourselves what are the tactics we are going to use to stop the destruction and take us beyond symbolic gestures.
