We are all guilty


People get prison time for auto accidents. Most people in our society use far more energy and resources than necessary, which is causing many more deaths from climate disruption than any auto accident.

 Eg., when you drive fast and weave in and out of lanes, use more paper towels and tissue than you need, buy clothes and only wear them a few times, sit around in you car with the engine running, keep you house or business cold in the summer and/or warm in the winter, you are guilty.  When you manipulate news to hide the danger of using fossil fuels, you are guilty.


 If I were a high school math teacher, I would give an assignment to come up with a model of how much farther people drive when they weave in and out of traffic.
