If a "green" approach is based on common sense, then fine. I doubt that there are any people who are all-out toxic freaks, as the Democrats would have everyone believe. Everyone has a stake in conserving our resources and looking for new ones. I heard just last week that recycling isn't going well and that they are even considering stopping it for a couple of years. It's too expensive and there aren't enough customers who are buying the recycled materials for manufacturing purposes. I wish we had a solar-powered home (or even a wind-mill although the home association would probably object mightily--not even allowed to have a clothesline in the back yard) and a hybrid car, but I certainly can't afford the initial cost.

Eco-buildings seem to be in the same vein as eco-vehicles. If a design is created, that is cheap and makes us less dependent on Big Business and Big Brother, it disappears into a deep void. If it makes the ecologists and the Powers more money and more powerful, it will be forced upon all of us.
