Hi PS... it's a good question you ask.
I think that people maybe just have a little compassion-fatigue, there seems to be a 'day' for everything now.
It's a little like over here, on the major sporting occasions there is often a minute's silence in memory of someone who has died or some tragic event which has occurred.
This is a great thing and I agree with it... at first everybody was moved by it, except that now they seem to have it every week. Don't want to sound callous but it does dilute the impact....
You're not kidding about the everyday thing...

I'm a Green, my whole life revolves around protecting the planet and earth's resources.
I don't care because I know what a farce and a fraud the whole Global Warming/AGW/Climate Change/Green Jobs lobby is.
Solyndra anyone? Fisker? Current TV???? Carbon Credits Exchange?????LOL
