Apple Steve Jobs writes about Apple's efforts to become a more enironmental friendly company. "Apple has been criticized by some environmental organizations for not being a leader in removing toxic chemicals from its new products, and for not aggressively or properly recycling its old products. Upon investigating Apple's current practices and progress towards these goals, I was surprised to learn that in many cases Apple is ahead of, or will soon be ahead of, most of its competitors in these areas. Whatever other improvements we need to make, it is certainly clear that we have failed to communicate the things that we are doing well." Among other things, Apple will introduce LEDs in displays to Macs this year.

Its not just America, most of the developed world is the same. True, fuel costs less in America, but that doesn't stop people in the UK or France for example, driving down to the shops in a 4x4 vehicle, or buying a petrol guzzling people carrier for one person.

I doubt society will ever change, because 99% of people don't care, because it won't effect them.
