"nothing at all will change until everybody is willing to give up a lot of comforts. Everything we've done to get where were at is what is killing us, not only us but the planet and its other inhabitants. if you're a believer that our planet is in trouble, what exactly can you do as an individual, and what are you WILLING to do to make a difference?"
Lft, I don't think it's the comforts themselves, or what individuals are willing to do/give up, so much as the way we acquire those comforts, and what we are willing to do to change that. We like our comforts, yes, but we're also very used to acquiring and those comforts in a certain way. I think we can have comforts without the current negative side effects, but that requires a re-engineering of the WAY things are done.
