",,,mass lifestyle change must be undertaken to combat rising temperatures, such as developing more sustainable diets, reducing food waste and red meat intake, and importing fewer greenhouse gas-heavy vegetables.." "There are lots of behavioral changes required, not just by the government...but by us,"
This stuff gets lost with all the demonizing of the fossil fuel industry but it reinforces how important a comprehensive view of the problem is to reducing emissions. I think the hardest changes to make are lifestyle changes. You can have programs for solar and wind, and energy efficiency but how in the world do you get people to change their lifestyles, and how many people are willing to admit that their lifestyles are part of the problem, particularly when it comes to food. It is much easier to blame oil companies and even capitalism in general. It is much harder to look at your dinner plate blame yourself.
