    developing countries people just toss trash. Yet the insides of their houses are spotless. It's that culture of a responsibility to oneself and ones family but not to the anonymous culture as a whole.

    We as a society do the same. Even here at DK.

    By diaries and comments I get a feeling that a lot of people went to net routes five million fifteen or whatever it was. To get there a whole lot of flying went on. Not a word. Probably a lot of "environmentalist" type Kossacks too. There wasn't even a recycling effort!

    I have very little hope that humans will collectively do anything to reduce CO2 when a gathering of progressives just adds to the problem. A case of tossing CO2 gasses into the communal atmosphere.
