We have become profoundly insensitive to what it takes to maintain our standard of living.

I realized recently that in order for us to do what's needed to prevent catastrophic climate change we're going to have to suffer profound changes in our way of life, our ambitions and our expectations. No more American Dream


  • No more disposable anything
  • No more huge homes for a family of 4
  • No more gas guzzlers
  • Less meat
  • More telecommuting


Got some to add?

Our habits of consumption have become epic.

Now tell me, dear readers (I've got at least 1), do you believe people will sacrifice everything they've been programmed to want to save the next generation? Hummm?

And think about how much energy is spent moving stuff around! The price of an avocado in NY... most food in NY, would cost so much nobody could afford the ridiculous housing costs.

We have become profoundly insensitive to what it takes to maintain our standard of living.
