One of the most critical things we can all do to help dawn the EcoEnlightened age is NOT making changes to our individual way of life. Not that it isn't important to make these changes mind you. However, the most critical thing we all need to do is show our leaders, especially political leaders that we care. We need to show them we understand we all need to change the way we do things but that to make these changes we need the right laws and incentives put in place. If they understand we care then then they can make the right choices without the fear of policial backlash.
Thus the folks at this protesting the Keystone XL Pipeline are a great sign that people are getting it and the EcoEnlightened Age will indeed dawn. If you don't know about the Keystone XL Pipeline and the debate around it I suggest googling it.
