Pretty soon, in most situations, the green options are going to be the cheap options, and that's going to drive a change in human behaviour.
I'm pessimistic about changing human nature, but I'm optimistic that our greedy nature will continue to innovate more efficient products and cheaper sources of energy. This view of people is very consistent. Sure, there are exceptions to the normal way most people behave, but living in tiny houses and eating a vegetarian diet is never going to be popular with the majority.
