Pragmatic tree huggers

Margaret Wente states that in order to successfully resolve the world’s environmental problems, professionals who combine environmentalism with engineering and business skills are needed. I agree; but make no mistake – none of this so-called “pragmatic environmentalism” would even exist today if it weren’t for the tree huggers and those with a more ecological mindset raising awareness about the scale of the environmental mess that the engineering and business sector created in the first place. Solving the world’s environmental problems, in other words, will require both “left-brain” and “right-brain” ideals, not one or the other.
