The irony resolves itself when you realize that they're not against specific technologies so much as they are technological progress in general, as manifested by a good standard of living in America. Funny though, they only worry about how others are contributing to their latest allegation of ecological decline. By being the ones to point out the problems, they believe themselves entitled to maintain, and even improve, their individual lot in life, irrespective of their carbon footprint. It's for the greater good, after all. They can be 'carbon-neutral', and thus sleep better at night, if they can get enough hayseeds to cut back on their consumption enough to offset the environmentalist's increased carbon output, including the hot air from both their jet engine and their pie-hole.

I generally listen to people who 'walk the walk' on issues important to them, even when I disagree. Those environmentalists that actually take (and live up to) the vow of poverty deserve to be heard, if for no other reason than they are not hypocrites; provided, of course, they're not so fringe as to be the next Unabomber.

However, most environmentalists, like most leftists, are hypocrites, so they can be largely ignored.

Bret Baier had a special on last night i happened to catch, "Obama's Green Economy", it was fabulous, i highly recommend watching it. They're brainwashing college kids with "Sustainability" BS taken from the UN, and the EPA is trying to kill off industry.
