There is no argument that “green” is the word of the day. Green is hip, green is cool, green is trendy. But trends come and go, what was hip last year is now “so last year.” While we are excited that people are “going green” in increasing numbers, and getting behind energy and ecologic issues more than ever, our serious concern is about whether this will last. What is hip and trendy needs to be a lifestyle, “the way things are around here.” Our kids need to grow up with it, it must be a societal norm, which we know evolves over time. Are we up to it? Can we “stay the course?” Though there are those who insist the urgency is overstated, the fact remains that we must make radical changes in our behavior. Whether or not there is an imminent threat, there is a threat. We need to work now to avert future disaster. We hope it is more distant than the catastrophists would postulate. This gives us some time to adapt. We’ve always been pretty good at that.
