  •  I have absolutely no quarrel with the concept of (5+ / 0-)

    a "right" to a thriving planet in consonance with nature.

    But especially in this country, there is a sizeable amount of libertarian types who always resist adding another "right"
    to our growing list.

    These guys must be convinced with an argument that shows them that a more sustainable planet enhances their life, and their prosperity. There are those out there who already have arguments in that regard and many of them are extremely well thought out and very common sense. We need more of this, especially because many libertarian types already hold the reins of possible change.

    For almost all of us on a place like Kos, and for all of us environmentalists (I myself being a passionate one) is a slam-dunk, of course. We're not the problem.
