For example , my car burns a crap load of fossil fuels pollutes the air and can be changed by a vehicle more environmentally friendly ( as the crow flies ) . O my refrigerator that uses electricity to light Las Vegas for a night , could be changed into one that is more efficient . MedlinePlus My point is that there must be a hell of a lot cheaper and easier for everyone to ensure a better future for us . The things that are better for the environment should not cost anything and the things that are bad should be dismantled completely. This is not a difficult concept . Some people can not afford to buy all new " more efficient " things. So I will continue to use the big polluters , due to lack of better resources. Saving the environment should be free! Why not ?

because the almight dollar reigns supreme. He who has the most dollars is commander supreme, and the commander supreme drives a big gas guzzling suv that runs on unleaded supreme. So become the supreme being and change the reign of the almighty dollar. It's that easy

Well, simply put, it isn't. Do you think that Toyota gets all it's sheet metal for free just because the Prius is fuel efficient. The fact of the matter is that environmentally friendly companies should get tax breaks, etc., but they still have to remain competitive. This won't happen if they start passing out hybrids like tootsie rolls.
