Interesting question. It seems that each generation is becoming more and more environmentally conscious, but having a worse impact on the environment. Looking back 3 or more generations, there were a lot more subsistence farmers and a lot less pre-packaged goods. Individuals did not shower as frequently and practiced a lot less consumerism. Families had one or no cars and used little fossile fuels. However, at these times they were not concerned with saving the planet, but they did have a much lower impact. These days many of us are concerned with reducing our footprint, but have a much larger one than our ancestors due to all the modern conveniences that we have become accustomed to.
There was a time in history when people were very environmentally conscious (many cultures were), and we’ve stepped away from that. We’re beginning to step back to it, so in a sense it’s ating like a pendulum.
