Anne Applebaum writes about how environmentalists are opposing renewable energy sources just as they are becoming practical:

“The problem plaguing new energy developments is no longer NIMBYism, the “Not-In-My-Back-Yard” movement. The problem now, as one wind-power executive puts it, is BANANAism: “Build Absolutely Nothing Anywhere Near Anything.” ….Are we really ready, politically, to build any new energy sources at all?”

When will the public realize that environmentalism is opposed to industrial civilization itself?
