  •  Personal use accounts for 20%. Institutional (1+ / 0-)

    use (business, government, defense, etc.), 80%.

    I'm all for reducing personal footprints.

    But that and electoral politics won't cut it. It's the insitutions. And they own government. They want you to play by the electoral rules. They want you to expend your energy in representative government. They have that sewn up already for another ten years, minimum.

    The way forward is to show in no uncertain terms that the people will not stand for business as usual when it comes to climate change and sustainability. Not one more extraction or refinement facility, not one more pipe, for fossil fuel. We need a war effort approach to changing course on energy production. That won't happen unless the government and the plutocracy that owns it feels the breath of the masses in their face.

    Mindfulness is the first necessity of sanity and survival and the first casualty of Consumer Culture.
