    I agree, and would add a couple.  I think that too many people underestimate the power to taking care of nature, gardening, and spending time outdoors. 

    I think too many people feel that the consequences of climate change will come in decades, and can’t be seen right away.

    I think too many people still target SUV’s and trucks as the the biggest culprit in pollution and wasting energy, when there are other factors that are bigger contributers, such as the meat industry.
