And by proactive you mean vote for people for whom climate change is at best not their top priority and at worse a hoax. What else do you do to combat global warming, Chula? Do you carpool? Turn the light off when you leave a room? Post pithy memes on Facebook?

Oxfam is a bunch of bull**** neoliberalism. This example aside, donating to them is almost exactly like voting for Democrats. It makes you a part of the problem instead a part of the solution.

You lost the right to talk about proactive environmentalism when procreated. More people more problems.

Batlord’s carbon footprint ends with him. That’s the best we can do.
