And no, to be clear, the problem is not overpopulation because Earth is not overpopulated.
The problem is a handful of rich countries spending a century building a culture filled with cheap disposable commodities, powered by setting fire to irreplaceable resources and oppression of those more vulnerable. Because a few people decided it was profitable, and lots of others didn't argue because it was convenient.
The problem is that humans are greedy and wasteful, and we need to stop.
@InvaderXan I wish it was easier to see what contributes most.
I do what I can buying little, recycling all my food packaging waste, traveling by bike or public transit etc, but honestly there's no feedback on what can be done better.
@rune In your case, it sounds like you're already doing plenty, considering how many people just drive cars everywhere by themselves and don't recycle anything. Past a certain point, the systemic problems outweigh the personal ones.
@InvaderXan I know there are people who do worse, but that line of logic will allow anyone to keep wasting.
I guess my point is without some kind of feedback it just gets very relative. I eat too much meat, but how bad that is, is hard to judge for myself.
Be mindful in your boosting of rideshare and carpooling of the absolute necessity across much of the US where a private car is non-optional, doubly-so for disabled folks. can't wait an hour for an available uber when your doctor's appointment is in 30 minutes. This isn't even getting into individually-altered accomodations vehicles.
