I adore ModFab
like a brother, but I'm a lot more cynical than he is. He still has hope
that a bunch of rich rock stars telling us to use compact fluorescent lightbulbs and "learn how to be happy with less" (how big is Sting's house, anyway?) is going to make one iota of difference in policies to address global warming. Here's what I want to know: How many people are going to drive SUVs to Giants Stadium today, or be delivered in Hummer stretch limos, to attend this concert? Not that I object to environmental consciousness; on the contrary. But since Americans have shown absolutely no desire to change their behavior one bit, does anyone believe that yet another live version of "Waiting on the World to Change"
is really going to make even one person buy a Prius, or a 2000 square foot house instead of a 4500 square foot McMansion?Digby
