The truth is there are MANY people (you and I included) that may not be aware or be avoiding such topics and something like that package can do a lot of good. It is like any change, it takes a many, many prodding's to make it happen.

Even the early smog control devices on our cars that we all despised back in the early days did a tremendous lot of good, some helped a lot and some actually did harm but the over-all effect was overwhelmingly positive. A look at Mexico and China and the massive auto exhaust and industrial induced smog compared to our relatively clean air is testament to the fact that it did work, not perfect by a long shot but orders of magnitude better than the pre-smog vehicles.
