DISQUS Doodlings: “If we want to make better decisions or do things in our society’s self-interest, we need to be tricked into doing them”

Yeah, Treehugger time again: “Environmentalists aren’t voting. This plan could help”. Environmentalists are shockingly bad at voting. During the 2014 midterm, only 21 percent of environmentalist registered voters actually voted, compared to 44 percent of general registered voters. Environmental problems are, by their very “nature,” large-scale problems that require large-scale solutions.
