I know it’s redundant, but these folks are serious.

He once approached Brock Evans, a pioneering force at the Audubon Society and the Sierra Club, and asked how Evans got all of it, or any of it, done.

“Endless pressure endlessly applied,” Evans replied. Houck pilfered the tagline and adopted the philosophy.

A good reminder of what we are up against.

Green blogger laments the reality facing environmentalists: ‘The truth is, it’s very difficult to get most people to care.’

By Editor carbon offsets, environmentalists Comments Off on Green blogger laments the reality facing environmentalists: ‘The truth is, it’s very difficult to get most people to care.’

The blogger at carbon offset monger, TerraPass, says environmentalists are “horribly off-message”, and that they haven’t made much progress in successfully communicating their message:

In a former life I was a journalist for a national radio news program. Stories about the environment were always difficult to put on air. Whether the topic was rainforests, pollution, ozone, endangered species or one of so many other things that falls to the Environment Desk, we always struggled to make it sound interesting and relevant. The truth is, it’s very difficult to get most people to care.

Now that the man-made global warming science has been exposed via Climategate > Glaciergate > Amazongate > (please insert any “gate” I’ve forgotten in here), their messaging has been made yet more difficult. And for that they can blame the “scientists”.

From The Oregonian:

The environmentalists, whose latest interest in matters of the toilet extends to the satanic pleasure of fluffy toilet paper, are laughable.

There may be carbon-based concern regarding wood-pulp use. If so, add such impacts to a carbon tax that allows fluffy toilet paper to compete with other carbon problems related to human activity.

Global warming is indeed a serious problem worthy of a serious, comprehensive solution. I would hope a more sane approach would build on our creativity, respond to our preferences and allow for differing utilities to be built into a market price.

The latest silly attempt at micro-managing our behavior by regulating the construction of toilet paper, however, reveals a petty totalitarian impulse in the environmental movement.

This impulse will do no good for our economy, our freedom or the environment.
