Why are people so resistant to change to help our environment?

    There are two fundamental reasons for this: foremost is that people are frightened of change. It unseats their mental paradigm of the status quo, and it means work, for that is the heart of all change.

    Further, they fear economic reprecussions, as all change requires money or sacrafice. Most Americans want things to stay the same, though we are learning, slowly and steadily.

    Change is a major fear for the common person. Our lives have been molded into accepting a daily routine, which when taken off course is usually considered to be a hassle and inconvience to many. American’s are set in their ways, changing lifestyles isn’t appealing when the reward isn’t going to immediately benefit the individual.

    A lot of it has to do with convenience.  Many people are not willing to change in order to benefit the environment because they have to go out of their way to do so.  On a bigger scale, some people may be nervous that change could have a unexpected negative backlash, such as a change in the economy.
