These "uppity" youngsters have certainly been born into a time were hard work has been replaced with technology, but we are responsible for creating the world they live in. It is my kid's great-grandparents, grandparents, and parents that they see using these things on a daily basis, so why exactly would they care how the changes came about since they didn't have any part in it? To them, the fact that we invented such stuff only confirms that we didn't give much thought to the environment. It is an interesting list to distinguish many of the changes from the past, but it is hardly a tool to use to say older generations were environmentally aware. We weren't, we did those things because we had to, and only until something better came along.

Other than a few of the most richest liberals in the US (Walton kids (IE Wal-mart), Buffet, Soros) most big corporate donors (Like Coke for example) give pretty much equally to both parties. So I guess I can answer Yes (and no) to your question
