Ok my apologies. Like I said I don’t know the circumstances of your life and you may need a car where you live, sounds like you do.
All I was saying is if you drive a car, the oil companies are drilling for you because you buy the oil from them, not because they like drilling. so many people refuse to take any responibility for climate change, blame oil companies, manufacturers etc, yet at the same time live lifestyles that drive the consumerism that creates that production they then condemn. Especially in the USA where everyone has cars, unnecessary electrical appliances etc (compared to other places) to the extent of consuming 8 Earth’s worth of resources. If you’re trying to avoid that lifestyle, good on you, but many don’t, yet they still blame the corporations. Of course in some CD-er’s world’s we are are not responsible for anything we do, it’s all the fault of an evil 1% who make us do stuff against our will, using some kind of mysterious brainwashing, but I don’t buy that. I’m not getting at you personally, I don’t know anything about your life, just making a general point.
As for solutions, I don’t have any, other than we are all responsible for what we do and that’s all we can do. You can’t change a system if the majority of your fellow species seem to choose to support it. Of course the key word is ‘choose’ and how you define it. That opens an endless philosophical socio-political debate which would take hours to explore in depth and, I don’t know about you, but I’ve got a dinner and bottle of wine with my name on it. Yet generally, I don’t like to patronise the rest of my fellow citizens with the attitude they are all too stupid to be able to think and act freely for themselves and take responsibility for what they do.
