Does a catastrophic event need to occur, for people to demand cleaner energy?

We are facing a silent killer, using non-renuable resources are slowing destroying our home however the initiatives are moving to slow. We can think of it as high blood pressure, people only pay attention to it after they have been to the hospital. What will it take to wake up?

    Mar 1 2013: Kelly,
    It is not like that.
    By passing time, extracting oil from the old reservoirs becomes harder and harder, and needs more improved ways of recovery.
    So costs go higher and higher.
    Now, it's a matter of money, and it is no kidding.
    Economy leads people to what they should do in its proper time.
    It won't be like the hospital stuff. It will be a gradual process of rising of people's anger in gas stations.
    Just wait.
