The New York Times recently did a piece on how green infrastructure projects in three famous liberal havens are facing extinction due to their own disgruntled population.  For one reason or another these hipster havens feel infrastructure essential to a more sustainable community are meant to be stuck somewhere else.  Of course none of us are wired to accept change with open arms, but if the well-educated and wealthy middle class cannot agree on implementing a good thing (i.e. wind power) then we have a problem.

   How can we possibly expect booming developing nations like India to limit their resource consumption if those of us who know we should do the same.... don't?
