Why It's Not Easy Being Green

Monday, December 07, 2009

Most of us know that environmental change is an issue and that our choices affect it... so why aren't we doing all we should to fix things? David Biello, associate online editor for Scientific American, and Benjamin Ho, behavioral economist at Cornell University, discuss why humans aren't more ecologically responsible, and how we can convince (or trick, even) ourselves to change our behaviors for the common good.

Guests:

David Biello and Benjamin Ho

there is a better way for humanity to build our cities. It is more efficient thermodynamically, materially, and in respect to transportation. It is more logical and can more easily co-exist with the natural environment. i have written a paper on the subject describing how this new type of civilization could be built. I want to share it so the ideas can be further developed
