"For men worried about their, well, masculinity? Be aware that pollution might make you girly. (Is this what it's going to take to make the Radical Right admit that destroying our ecosystem is a bad idea?)"

I recall in 1994, when I was working for a very small environmental magazine, a study came out that showed that numerous common household chemicals were leading to groin defects and small penis size in male children. I summarized the study for an article. I think I went with a title like "Okay Guys, Can We Clean Up The Environment Now?"

Eleven years later and the public seems even less interested in environmental issues than in 1994.

If that doesn't get their attention, I don't know if anything will.
