Climate change is not a consumer level issue. There's nothing we could possibly do to hope to stop it at our level. It's happy and nice to think that, but it's a manufacturing issue. And yes, sure, if EVERYONE ON EARTH stopped buying useless crap, maybe we'd help the issue a bit, but good luck with that.>>95913013
Again, it's not a consumer level issue. You and I could do nothing to stop this. It's not that I don't believe in it or that I urge others to do nothing or anything so stupid. I'd love to help save the world, sure. But realistically it's not going to help. Nothing we could do would help. The damage is done, we're fucked. End of story. I'd love for people who could potentially help to help, but honestly the reality of that is non existent.
(Plus, let's be real, did you really think turning off all the lights in your house or buying an electric car was going to save the earth? You're doing the environmental protection equivalent of slacktivism. It's like sitting at home on your tumblr complaining about how none of the characters in OK KO have realistic body types. You're not actually changing anything.)>>95913121
Good grief. Lobbying from the energy businesses on congressmen is already much harsher than lobbying from a private citizen could ever be. Compare a person on a phone asking them to push for environmental policies vs. a businessman offering him millions to turn it down. Do you think congressmen don't already know what the fuck is happening? Their lining their pants with millions while this shit goes down because they know it wont matter to their generation or themselves and they like money.
Anyway, like I said earlier. It's too late to stop this as it is. It would be nice if we could, but we've already done the damage, the gears are in motion and we can't stop them, or even slow them down. Not on a consumer level and more than likely not on a manufacturing level anymore, either. We're done. This is it. Oh well.
