Interesting article in NYT that kind of sums up what I've been feeling for years... The fact that "environmentalists" - folks who care about things basic to life (air, water, land) are noted as societal exceptions.... they're goofy tree-huggers, etc. Maybe one day we'll actually reach a point at which we say that "being green" isn't special, crazy or unique... it's just something that MAKES SENSE. I'm getting really sick and tired of people asking me "are you doing that for environmental reasons?" or folks saying "you have a strong environmental ethic," etc. FOR BLEEPS SAKE, I do things (some things that is, whenever I can anyway - I'm far from "perfect") that I see as generally good for community/society and our common efforts at a good life! I don't live my life according to "max profit" and/or convenience and to heck with all else... I try my best to think about kids, folks, land, images, beauty, experience.... come on, why is that so nutty? Why does that need a special label? Maybe one day people who DON'T care about life's basic components will be the exception.... maybe call them the "moneyists"?

In summary, the problem with environmentalism as a movement, is that it has to exist as a movement.
