The environmental elite seem to all come from wealthy, industrialized western countries with cheap, abundant food, comparatively cheap abundant energy, well developed infrastructures, pretty good medical services and all the other amenities of wealthy, industrialized society. They all seem to want to return to some vision of a noble savage that never existed. They also want to keep the third world in grinding poverty and without those amenities. Obama fits right in with this.
