"Americans" refers to over a nation of over 300 million individuals. Do you think that perhaps describing 300 million people in one grand judgmental sentence might be a tad bit of oversimplification?

Poor dumb Americans don't understand what we're doing to mother Earth. Please.

As a matter of fact, it is being brought up everywhere as a subject. Certainly amongst all but the most staunch opponents.

But let us be clear here. Driving an electric car or recycling a few plastic bottles is like spitting in the ocean. What these coastal areas need is major engineering projects to proof them against the new reality of storms.
Either you have a purpose behind your expression... or you don't.
