I think this quote says absolutely everything that needs to be said on the subject.
Quote:
How desperate could the planet's plight be if the people who present themselves as most concerned about it consider flying first-class commercial an unacceptable sacrifice?

I laugh at environmentalists, they are all the same. Not an honest one to be found in the lot. We need a different word, to describe people like me. People who knew about straw bale construction before it became fashionable, people who actually walk the walk, who don't fly on private jets and charter 13 buses for their entourages to follow them around. People who know that photo voltaics are a waste of time, that using the heat directly is the way to go. People who know that wind power is at best a tiny part of a fraction of the solution. People who actually drive reasonable cars.

The term environmentalist has been ruined by the hypocrites and poseurs. I guess the term for me is skinflint, because it is all about saving the money.

The word for you is normal.

Cost is what moves most people. Unless your an idealogical, lefty, pinko.
