    My take is that people generally have become very short-sighted about the future.  Rather than considering the proverbial 7 generations, it's more like a concern with tomorrow, next paycheck, next quarter, or at most, next tax return.  When threats enter that time scale, people feel much more urgency.  

    Sometimes that's too late, of course.

    Oddly enough, I see some positive news regarding energy and environmental issues.  Cultural attitudes need to change, but I think they are already starting to get there.  

    How many wrongs does it take to make a right?
