    I was struggling with that sentence exactly because of everything you say here. That's why I put in the "western industrialized" and "people reading this" bit. The diary is about our particular consumer society and what we can do to be less wasteful, but even there it's hard to generalize, as you point out with your parents' example. But I think it's fair to say that as a whole, western industrialized countries' economies and societies have been boosted by fossil fuels for at least a century, and all the way back to the industrial revolution. I feel comfortable making that generalization, with obvious individual exceptions, of course.

    Live life. Not too fast. Mostly walk. (or bike)
