ikanreed: Responsible environmentalism is practical, better for the economy, and less tied up in ideology that laizes faire capitalism. Some environmentalists do not get this, but that has no bearing on how boneheaded "do nothing" is an approach.
FLMountainMan: Tom Clancy had a book where he used "tree-hugger" as a pejorative. Over and over. I'd read all of Clancy's books to that point, but that was the last one. Enjoying nature isn't something to be ashamed of. Sure, there are some extremely stupid or misguided ideas under the umbrella of environmentalism, but there are with most movements.
