Which Is It? Market Reality Or Health Issue? How Do You Know?
In the end, we are asked to "believe" the so-called stakeholders (manufacturers and other organizations) who stand to directly benefit from going "green"....
We are asked to "believe" that "green" products are healthier than other products without really having the tools at our disposal to know the facts. We are asked to "believe" these things by those who CONTINUE to produce and sell "unhealthy" products, so the real question is...why should we "believe" them?
The efforts of the "Green Machine" have been focused largely on getting government to mandate their products while at the same time continuing to produce and sell obsolete and comparatively "dangerous" products.
Their strategy is for government to FORCE EVERYONE to buy in - when logic should dictate that if the products are as they claim - the old products should be OUTLAWED, following their own strategic reasoning. But NOOOooooo....they really want it BOTH WAYS! And the reason for doing so is crystal clear. Prices for "green" products are still high, and they want to milk the process.
All other things being equal, a provably (keyword!) healthier, environmentally friendly/ safer product should be the only product available. Why should good health and environment be accessible only for those with a bigger budget?
