There’s no right answer to this question, but I think at least a part of the reason is a hesitation to change. It is very hard to motivate people to change their behaviors unless there is a good incentive, so despite all our efforts to find solutions to environmental problems, it’s difficult to accomplish without full cooperation from the people. Another obstacle is enacting environmentally-sound policies, as the environment is not always the first priority when it comes to law-making. Usually, corporations are the ones that have the money and clout to influence the law, which makes it tough for grassroots groups to fight back. In sum, a variety of reasons can account for the difficulty in solving environmental problems, but I think it’s mostly systemic and behavioral limitations.
The answer is money. If our economy is hurt, from personal life to big business, than environmental problems are not addressed. Typically businesses will not take a financial hit in order to help save the environment. In order to find solutions to environmental problems, there needs to be financial incentive. Whether this incentive comes through a tax break from the government, or change in public attitude towards the company, business needs a financial (or legal) incentive to find environmental solutions.
