Uncommon Sense

Just heard on NPR (I'm slightly paraphrasing):

When people's financial interests and environmental interests align, they are likely to choose products that are more environmentally friendly; but when they are opposed, they are more likely to choose products that make more economic sense.

That seems like a very tortured and confusing way to say that people care more about their wallet than the environment. This came as part of a segment on a new Wal-Mart policy on environmental labeling.
