The greenest gear of all is going unused

Treehugger posted a link to a recent Economist study about the plummeting attendance at America's national parks, and tagged with the incredibly to-the-point comment: "The importance of this decline can hardly be over-estimated."

Kevin Coyle, of the National Wildlife Federation, sums it up best ... “There won't be a conservation movement 30 years from now if there's no love for nature."

    wait a second. has anyone been to a national park lately? crowds, car alarms, traffic jams, sirens, air pollution, gas generators, litter . . . who'd drive hundreds of miles and pay to see that? I'd argue that a "love of nature" is exactly what keeps some of us away.
