1. Consuming is too much fun. I don't see anyone being responsible.

I'm fuming at the moment. I know someone who is an environmental engineer, and the fucker is in his car, driving all over the god damned place just to go on bike rides. Arizona! Colorado! New Mexico! Woo hoo! I have spent my life sacrificing in order to be frugal, and not fuck the planet up more than an American living a modern lifestyle does.

If an environmental engineer doesn't get it, who does?

Consuming to avoid boredom. Consuming in order to enjoy a wonderful life. Hell, it's so damned tempting to use up resources in order to see new places.

I've got news for people, it's only going to increase. The number of planes streaming across the skies is increasing. The number of cars.

This week 1.5 million new humans appeared on the planet. That's the size of a large city, EACH WEEK.

This is not off topic. It just doesn't address the specifics of the post. The underlying problem is the same- 1.5 million EACH WEEK.

Are we ever going to address the problem?
