The show simply never gets really serious. It tells us the facts - how many hangers go into landfills each year - then offers a solution that doesn't usually go far enough. In the case of the hangers they mention that new hangers are being made out of biodegradable materials. That isn't nearly far enough.
I know that many - perhaps most - Americans are more than reluctant to face the real facts. Until they are hit in the face with a really obvious problem they don't do shit about global warming, waste, energy conservation. So a show that gets really serious would get really no watchers. So I try to accept this approach. I just wonder how long it will take before we get a show on this channel that speaks to those of us who are actually serious.
