    disconnected from their role in cc.  it makes it almost impossible to have them participate and we need everyone on board.  i'm just trying to focus on the short lived climate pollutants and their necessary role in mitigation. so i continue with the meatless series in hopes.

    your enthusiasm is so important..hope you don't burn out. I've been fighting cc for about 20 years and sometimes it does seem futile but i don't think i have the luxury of stopping

      the most optimistic guy around for sure but I try to maintain a sense of reality and bring some humor to the table when talking about this issue.  My Church of the Holy Shitters religion is my attempt at all this.  It is my attempt to change our perception and accept our role and collusion in causing the problem.  Reducing consumption will follow the acceptance of "my shit actually does stink" thinking.  It's the first step in dealing with the addiction.  You've convinced me to drastically reduce my meat consumption.  That's impact!  

      Rest assured that nature will keep hitting us with it's 2x4 awareness board in ever increasing intensity and frequency.  Just keep focusing on solutions and hope.   More will listen as the "shit keeps hitting the fan!"

      If we really want to straighten out all this crap we really need to think about shit - Holy Shit.
