“Those dirty Americans…”

Talking about stereotypes: German magazine “Stern” shows a slide show about ‘Energy Hog’ USA — have a look, the pictures speak for themselves.(to jump to the next picture, click on ‘weiter’ on the lower right corner). The first picture shows glowing American cities from space…

But again, is THIS really the US? In Germany, there is only “Bush equals US”. Maybe someone should tell them that there are many people who DO care, volunteer and who want to change something. Typical German way to approach such topics: very dualistic, black and white. I am sure it would be easy to find ‘double standards’ in Germany, dying forests, rivers, chemical factories and all those people smoking in bars and restaurants..
