What do you think of the "going green" fad?


As with many other things, I find the whole movement of "going green" to be as commercialized and full of fake fluff as Christmas. How do you feel about the whole thing?

    Thanks for the comment. I did post an article addressing my full thoughts on the subject. It's not that I think we don't need a change. It's the way people many people don't seem to take the need seriously that inspired my question.

    Well said. That's exactly why I asked the question. I wanted to get some ideas on what people think and prep my own mind for an article. All so I can study the topic more deeply. Some people are making real change, others, not so much.

    Seeing this kind of thing is why I asked the question. Thank's for great feedback (especially about Al Gore). I'm sorry this response was voted down so it's not visible.

    And it won't let me vote it back up. Shame.

    At first, I agreed with this perspective. Then I saw a lot of people just doing the bare minimum to feel good about "going green." In the end, after a lot of research, I see both. Some people are trying to inspire, others are trying to make a buck.

    I agree with Writer in some ways. I think that we use energy and resources carelessly at times. I do not think we are killing it though.
