We have long been advocating two actions which seem to be surfacing as the only solutions to our environmental woes. These are litigation and choosing better leaders. Both of these have big drawbacks, the former being very expensive and lengthy time-wise, and the latter also is slow as well as having the problem of educating the public as to the correct candidates.
One help for the voter issue can be found in a group called Environmental Voter Project, which attacks the problems by increasing the number of environmentally-inclined voters. They do not endorse candidates, but simply activate the potential for putting supporters of the environment in office.
