I'm really starting to think that anything short of a WW2-scale government-led mobilisation effort to fight climate change is just a bit of window dressing. Individual actions like flying less or going vegan, or corporate actions like carbon offsetting are just not going to scale fast enough and are probably just a distraction from meaningful change. The technology is there and the transition will (probably) happen eventually at this point, we just need the political action to drastically reduce the timeframe.

@rlamacraft Massive action *is* needed. Personal lifestyle changes may help ease one's moral compass --- admittedly a good thing --- but they aren't going to change things, unlike government action on the matter.
