Why can't left be right?

Why is environmentalism an issue of the left and not of the right? Why are those who disbelieve climate change on the right and not the left? I mean, the question is, just how did the two sides get to where they are on this? Was it coincidence, or are there fundamental beliefs on each side that created this divide? [more inside]

What would happen if the "blue states" seceded?

I was looking at a spoof map showing the 'United States of Canada' and 'Jesusland'. In it, the 'blue' states were now part of Canada, and the 'red' states were what's left of the US. With the increasing divide between the two sides, what would happen if those 'blue' states seceded somehow. Don't they represent most of the economic prosperity in this country? And what does that fact say about the this country?

(I know this is not possible, but it is interesting to look at the relationship between economics and political leaning.)
