I've heard a lot of discussion about a tipping point with regard to how/when people will REALLY start to change their habits and embrace a total shift in the way we conduct our lives on a daily basis. The fact is, I don't think it is that simple. While I understand the desire to want to see the green movement as a revolution, in truth it is more of an evolution. Slow, deliberate change and improvement over time mark this movement towards a healthier more efficient lifestyle. We have been marching towards greener lifestyles for some time now.

That said, there will be moments of punctuated change -- a time where the process speeds up. Judging from Friday's headlines, I think we are about to enter one of those periods.

You are absolutely correct. A steady evolution will be the best for us in the long run. If everyone starts making some sort of change the cumulative effect will be great. Conservation isn't as exciting as seeing a windmill in action but it's the quickest way to decrease demand.
