Barenaked Ladies Discuss Differences Between USA and Canada

Interesting that Page considers Americans to be more progressive on the environment.

Page is partially right. US has lots of laws related to polution controls, conservation, and so on. So they prefer to keep their own 'space' nice and clean, healthy but seem totally unaware about how their consumption of products and oil based energy is done for 'them' over there. So as they drive in their SUVs by that lake, river, park - regulated and conserved - there is a disconnect that the oil in their tank came through the destruction via someone elses eco-system.
They miss that connection. Hopefully, Gore's inconvenient truth will help, but I don't think so.

I believe this is from when they played at Harvard last year. BNL is my favourite band, and I'm so glad that we share many views in common. Steve was actually one of the many people that encouraged me to get involved in politics. Grade 12, the year of so many role models :)
