A busy, distracted, and somewhat plump populace who, even if they find out about a government program they don't like, won't quite be able to find the time, energy, or solidarity to do battle. In the case of B.C. Premier Christy Clark and her grandiose LNG dream, that's the modus operandi.

You can still go on road trips. But instead of visiting China, why not visit those countries that are heavily investing in sustainable, renewable resources? You wouldn't have to go far.
