I'm constantly wondering why the sustainable living industry has as much trouble as it does convincing people, especially the Aikido community to participate (don't get me wrong Aikidoka do play a major part in this industry). I'm quite sure that my study of Aikido is in large part responsible for my becoming an entreprenuer in the biofuel industry. Aikido is about harmony with nature, petroluem which drives our planet is out of Harmony.
According to the Green Money Journal http://www.greenmoneyjournal.com/article.mpl?newsletterid=15&articleid=128
There is a paradigm shift occurring in American values-one that speaks to living in a manner that is more economically, environmentally and spiritually sustainable than now prevails. Not only does such a lifestyle benefit of the United States and its citizenry but for that of the world as a whole. It is a paradigm in which an ample and convenient goods and services do not have sole priority, as has been the case for many in the post-World War II generation.
