Liberals want to feel better, in the sense that any pollution isn't so obvious and plain to the eye. For pipelines, the pollution is quite obvious to the liberals, since they feel hurt when Native American tribes complain and say that the pipelines are desecrating their cultural heritage. Also, in the minds of the liberals, potential pipeline leaks and pollution of groundwater is very obvious to them.

But the liberals will be fine with solar panels that require all sorts of heavy metals mined from Africa or China or other less developed nations to actually function properly. Liberals will be fine with the windmills manufactured and assembled in China. Are these green energy components produced through equally polluting manufacturing processes? Of course that is the case, and it is especially the case, since these less developed nations are permitted by the globalist UN, World Bank, WHO, and lots of other international agencies to purposefully have very lenient environmental laws. But you know what, because the pollution is happening over there and not on the lands of a Native American reservation, the liberals are totally fine with that. They wouldn't dare to take a closer look.

Honestly, humanity was conditioned to destroy and pollute after Adam and Eve got fooled by the serpent. There is no way to escape our current trends of unmitigated destruction and pollution of the natural environment, unless we want to go back to the days of zero plumbing, zero electricity, zero running water, zero heating and cooling, and even zero toilets. We may be able to stop polluting by a lot, if we choose to return to the 1700s and to live like animals in mud huts and log cabins with gravelly floors. Why do we have so much pollution? Because we want to be hygienic and modern... that's why. Living more primitively is definitely possible, and honestly, this extremely conservative solution is also the most sustainable one. So then, it's time for us to change our expectations and go back to the good old days.

Regarding all of the hygiene, plumbing, and utilities, humanity as a whole ended up bamboozling ourselves. Now, we are stuck between wanting to save the planet by living more primitively to actually live more sustainably and wanting to safeguard the health of the human population through hygiene and modern safety regulations for our homes and buildings. Of course, the globalists want to solve this conundrum by stealing all of our property so that a one-world government owns everything and runs the world. I say, let's just go back to the days of 200 acres for each family, a small farm for each family, and self-reliant communities... as intended by Thomas Jefferson and the Founding Fathers.

I think you are right on the mark with all of that. Not to mention the wars and conflicts that go on incidentally over control of those resources. That's why Trump didn't have a war for four years: we didn't care about their resources.

Living sustainable is very simple. I set up enough hydroponic equipment to feed my entire family fresh fruits and vegetables for about $200 and some basic plumbing and general tool skills. I was able to build a 10 x 10 greenhouse with a rocket heater for next to nothing. I was gifted four chickens and built a coop with scrap lumber and wire. I catch rainwater and am in the process of building a filtration system that runs through a solar heating system that supplements my daily needs. The point is, you are right...sustainable alternatives exist. But these alternatives require ppl make to make their own choices about what they value, where they want to live, etc. If people value ecology, sustainability, and the broader environment they will get off of their collective asses and do something about it.

Armchair environmentalism is the worst because it's like checkers or one-dimensional chess, as if a govt mandate happens in a vacuum. The govt makes an edict and then everyone feels good and they go back to recycled paper lattes, Activist 5ks, and their $500k homes while simultaneously complaining about $7/gallon gas. Mind boggling.

The system can't have people making choices because human desires are endless, but resources are finite. They must control those resources and their allocation. It's really that simple.
