Gore sums it up

I just read Al Gore's neat summing up of why, for me, Green politics is so crucial:

"It's important to change lightbulbs, but more important to change policies and laws."

People can make a difference by themselves, but governments can make a much bigger one. Our local council is constantly putting pressure on us to do our bit - recycle, walk to school - without seeming to realise that it's their job to provide the incentives and infrastructure that will make 'green' behaviour the norm.
