WARNING: This will be a rant. I’m pissy and I can’t sleep until I get this off my chest. But, I figure if it gets me out of my funk and writing again, it can’t be all bad.
I never write about environmental topics. The reason for this is that on the whole, as a group, I dislike environmentalists. Unfortunately, the majority are simply looking for an outlet for their own impotent outrage or a way to puff themselves up so that they may feel self-righteous in the face of their neighbours.
No one, of course, wants to believe that they fit either of these descriptions. But I can tell you, I have been an environmentalist for over a decade and at times both of these descriptions have described me. Perhaps not all at once, and it is something that I grew out of, but it doesn’t change the facts.
