looks like the green beanies are getting their knickers in a twist over the fact that regular folk aren't as freaked out about "earth day" as they are. see article here.
correct me if i'm wrong but there are other issues to be concerned about that are just as important, if not of more immediate concern, aren't there? say. . .national security? healthcare? employment? crime? education?
get this: The challenge goes beyond the environmental movement, said George Lakoff, a University of California, Berkeley linguistics professor who has written about how language colors political discourse. Lakoff argues that the entire public agenda has been seized by what he calls a "right-wing ideological political movement that's extremely powerful and well-funded."
a right-wing ideological political movement? now that's colorful language.
