We have to focus on systems not individuals
Pondering how people confuse climate change solutions with individual puritanism; this is not a problem that lends itself to puritan solutions. Our challenge is to see that the problem is systems design. We are actors within and creatures of a grand system we have built; avoiding buying a SUV is a moral statement worth making for one's own conscience, but not actually a solution in itself - that lies in our contemplation and amendment of the macro settings of our society.
