    And all the reputable well done science tells us that we are in deep trouble.
    We can continue to burn fossil fuels and wait for the catastrophes to occur..... coastal city flooding to make Sandy look like a minor problem.
    Or... we can do something

      we're doing more than signing online petitions.  Though I'll happily sign.

      On some level, we have to go full Gandhi on this and become the change we wish to see.  We can't expect top-down political initiatives to save us in spite of ourselves; we need to begin creating the culture we need to become.  Like, you.  Now.

      I'm pretty sure most people could find ways to cut their carbon footprint in half more or less overnight.  A small contribution individually can add up to a hell of a lot in aggregate.

      (Also, please note that I said more than, not instead of.  Obviously we need to continue putting pressure on our elected officials, but right now we're hardly a noteworthy demographic.)
