Green Guilt


"The same demographic group for whom religion has little or no hold (namely white liberals) turns out to be the most virulent champions of all things green. Is it possible that these folks must vent their moral spleen on environmentalism because they don't have all the theological campaigns (e.g., opposing gay marriage, opposing abortion, etc.) on which social conservatives exercise their indignation?"

Indubitably true. This is also why it takes no more than a couple of Clarkson-style remarks to provoke liberal greens into mouthfoaming levels of indignant rage.

An argument that is surely quite well known? But I did like the introduction of Nietsche - gives it all a nice bit of tone. In fact, few arguments are not improved when you can slip in a bit of the old nutjob.

very well known Gaw - I just liked the way he outlined the argument in a way that I always forget to when I am in the pub on a friday night
