Is your personal convenience or the health of the planet more important?

It barely snowed in New York anymore. We have so thoroughly fucked up the climate that I am seriously wondering if there will be a time in my lifetime where snow is rendered obsolete. Even Ben Bernanke said that the economy is shifting to the tens of thousands of jobs in renewable energy and away from coal, yet Washington it too busy shoving lobbying money so far up their asses that they vomit it back up.

It depends. I do count on a car and washing machine, but we strive for a zero waste home. We don't use paper plates or zioloc baggies, we use biodegradable trash bags. We do what we can without creating a major inconvenience.

Do a lot of Californians follow suit?

Generally I'd say no. I live in Orange County and people love to buy and waste stuff here. People here care about personal convenience way more than environment.

The earth will survive our being here. If we do not control what we do here we may not survive. Being here can be an existence made worse or made better. Humans have either thrived or faced extinctions due to changes in just the weather. I personally do not like breathing exhaust fumes. I think it's unhealthy for me but everyone else doesn't seem to mind it. There is nothing I can do to change that or how the planet reacts to us being here.

I think we should all be good stewards of our planet. However, we aren't responsible for the entire world.

The entire world is where you live. You advocate out of sight out of mind. What happens on this planet anywhere happens everywhere to all of us.

Tell that to the countries who don't care about the planet.

That would be the responsible effort to make.
