  •  half our food is thrown away (6+ / 0-)

    mostly the stuff no one wants, and at restaurants, but also in our houses.

    How big is your personal carbon footprint?

    •  It doesn't help that half the produce (3+ / 0-)

      in the non-compostable and non-recyclable package, because that is the only way it is sold, is already rotten.
      Damned wasteful.

      Living like a monk won't fix our problems. Most of the CO2 and pollutants are coming from production, and the USA learned long ago that it is cheaper and easier to offshore that so it can pollute the other side of the planet rather than visibly pollute the USA. Climate Change doesn't care though, it is the same planet. I recommend "The Story of Stuff" on youtube. It has a couple problems, but is a cute little film that shows that being a better consumer helps, but is nowhere near enough to actually change or fix anything.
