Must..quit…

There are certain things in life worth pursuing at all costs: meaning, love, harmony, happiness.

And there are some things that are not. Thomas Friedman, long a free-market fanatic, has recently focused his thoughts on the environmental policy implications of a gas-free state. Quitting oil is, in Friedman’s opinion, one of the most productive decisions America can make. And one of the most important.

What’s fascinating from an American point of view is that America, though in spots surging forward (see SF’s mandatory recycling proposal for slightly authoritarian inspiration), is largely paying lip service to environmentalism. American’s rarely equate environmentalism with change–it’s more about adaptation. And what’s frightening is that we’re not adapting as fast as circumstances may dictate.

America needs change now. Change in our politics, priorities, and plans. Only then will we enjoy the fruits that Denmark has–those that sound so sweet, it’s confusing why we haven’t already bitten the apple.
