Looks like an epidemic to me.

The whole world, at least in the parts I’m familiar with, has become completely and compulsively obsessed with green-ness. The leader of the federal Green Party is accorded a sort of semi-saintly status by the media. Companies that used to advertise their products with beautiful women presenters now instead try to tell us how green their goods are. Even big fossil-fuel companies, not that I or anyone on this page has anything against them, are all touchy-feely-green: Their ads give you the impression they sell blue skies, high style and universal one-ness, not gasoline.

Somehow I don’t think we’ll be sealing off the borders if this thing spreads.
