As far as I've seen since 1973,the only thing that can change an American's behavior is through the purse,either with a carrot,or a stick.
Perhaps all the Energy-Star incentives have gone by unnoticed.And Federal and State tax incentives for home solar,EVs, and such.
Public education might make a difference,but you'd have to get government out of bed with fossil fuels to have a chance with the boards of education.
