In science, you need a theory, an approach, and a way to measure the results. In politics, you only need an opinion and a microphone. Therefore, it is interesting that a major Green advocate -- promoting sensible environmental solutions -- took the stand to criticize past Green efforts.
George Monbiot (winner of a UN Global award, among others) recently scribed Let's Face it, none of our environmental fixes break the planet-wrecking problem
. There was immediate outcry and, as usual, the pundits somehow claiming this is proof that Green=Bad are missing the point on this.
