    You shouldn’t really feel guilty about anything like that. Asking hundreds of millions to billions of people to drastically change their lives and practice austerity is insane while billionaires do whatever they want and corporations push legislation that makes it harder to conserve. Our meager efforts won’t matter much if the biggest offenders go pollute wantonly.

    Individual’s biggest efforts are pushing for legislation and politicians who will curb corporate abuses. Everything is a drop in a bucket that’s already overflowing.

      That’s why capitalism is inherently incompatible with stopping Climate Change and we’re all fucked.

      There’s a limit to what is ethical when it comes to the acceptance of one’s own carbon footprint. It’s OK to use plastic bottles every now and then, but fuck flying 3 times a year. This is part of the problem, and something that we’ll need to learn to live without eventually.

        Why would billions of us stop our excess pollution when we can just kid ourselves a handful of billionaires are doing it all? /s
