Why Green is More Important

Green vs. Green. Which is better? Being rich or being environmentally-sound? This is the new dilemma of our century.

This morning I was listening to NPR and an interesting issue came up: if we keep going at the rate that we are going, heating up the ozone and causing global warming, some frozen areas on the Earth (I forgot what they are called) will melt, thus causing over 50 feet of water to be added to the Earth's surface. This is akin to over-flowing your bath tub with water, but with more serious results. A lot of cities are located near coastlines and our cities could be under water.

I have a fear of drowning. So to be a little bit naive, I would say I prefer to be alive than to be dead and rich.
