Re: Go on a Low Carbon Diet
A flood starts with the first drop (ancient Chinese saying I just made up).
It's up to all of us to make the effort, we can probably make more impact outside of our own family circle than we can within it.
What we don't know is where that effort will work. The first 99 people may make little difference, but the 100th could well own that factory and ignoring any global effect, may respond to money saving in a way that makes the other 99 fade into insignificance.
How many people ran out and bought energy efficient light-bulbs when they first came out? Who replaced their fridge or washing machine straight away?
It's like eating an elephant* - you'd never do it in one go, but break it up over time and you'll get there.
