control what you can control, and vote for environmental friendly government. |
I also think the government should absolutely be incentivizing good climate choices by individuals and corporations. They should also be prosecuting those who harm the environment.
That said, does any of it really matter when China is going to open a new coal power plant every week? Are we really saving the environment when buying an EV with giant batteries that involve a ton of pollution to manufacture? Just feels like we are spitting into the ocean.
