  •  well, when I read, in the first sentence of a (0+ / 0-)

    diary, this:

    "Living like a monk, under capitalism, will do nothing about global warming."

    I interpret that as meaning there's no point in making any "monk" like efforts, because those efforts "do nothing."

    If that interpretation is a "straw man," well, then, I plead guilty, but I don't think it is. "Do nothing" is pretty strong language.

    I guess it's the Green in me, I always think small scale efforts are part of any solution to any problem.

    I did not say say individual efforts would be "enough," because I wrote: "Will it stop or reverse global warming? Well, no, I don't expect so." and no change, no efforts are "enough" if they don't stop or reverse global warming, right?
