having epiphany and there being a massive paradigm shift in environmental policy? For 20 years this message has been preached to the masses and the masses have ignored it. Scientists have advised governments to find more widespread use of cleaner forms of energy. These cleaner forms of energy production have been in existence and in use for years. Unfortunately they are not being used at the levels which they should be. Instead, governments and the general populace are investing heavily in the status quo of fossil fuels, which in turn destroys the environment through pollution from their heavy use. To get this sudden change in attitude towards the environment, something catastrophic will have to happen. People will have to die and land will have to disappear before the government and general public reverses their views on environmentally friendly policies.
