TNR Agrees with me about attitude!

Check out this post from TNRs Environment blog. I think we don't hear enough posts like this from folks in the environmental movement (except for the excellent Breakthrough Institute). It's gotten better recently but we still hear leftists/progressives talking about how other people (usually poorer, less educated people who disagree with them) need to run their lives. Talking like that is a complete turn-off and totally uninspiring. The work Environics has done shows this again and again, talking down to people and speaking outside of their values and their life context is will doom whatever you're trying to promote.

Yes it was only a fairly minor thing but TNR picked it up, which isn't minor, and I like that.
