Found an interesting series of articles on Always On entitled “Practical Ecology.” The first article in the series lists five “environmental myths”:
-Being environmentally correct requires a lower standard of living
-Any good environmentalist is a socialist
-Hydrogen and other renewable energy are the answer to our energy needs
-We have to recycle everything
-New housing developments must be limited to within existing cities
-Natural wilderness and biodiversity are sacred
-We must have mass transit
-There are going to be worldwide energy and water shortages.
-There is a population explosion.
-If we don’t make drastic changes right now, the earth will become uninhabitable
