So what are you personally doing about it?
Gosh we're saving the universe by recycling and buying an electric car! Is that what you wanted to hear? What do you think we're doing? We're doing the same thing as most sensible people, trying to limit our impact by reducing our carbon footprint. That basically starts with your household and your vehicle for most people. I'm also trying to raise awareness rather than spreading disinformation about it. What we can do as individuals is important but it really needs to be addressed on both a societal and worldwide level, just like we addressed the ozone crisis. That was ironically one of the few UN successes.
Good. You're doing your part and should leave it at that. But you won't because you're too fucking bored. What exactly do you want everyone else to do? Should individuals be thrown in jail for owning a car that runs on gas? Will we bomb nations that refuse to stop burning coal? Poor people in third world countries don't care about this stuff. This is a rich person problem. Most people working day to day never contemplate their carbon footprint. Maybe just kill all the undesirables because it's so much easier. How about selectively culling the world population for the good of the environment? Make farts illegal.
Does this stuff keep you up at night? If so then get a grip already.
You either oppose basic scientific consensus or you're demanding we bomb coal-burning nations and killing undesirables!
