Carlson bristles when critics focus on the perceived hypocrisies of the jet-setting, tree-planting rich people.
"We cannot prove that those are in error who tell us that society has reached a turning point; that we have seen our best days. But so said all before us, and with just as much apparent reason. On what principle is it that, when we see nothing but improvement behind us, we are to expect nothing but deterioration before us?"
Thomas B. Macaulay
