The reality is that by taking small steps to reduce your impact -- going vegan, forswearing air travel or paying for green electricity -- you, as a single person, won't reduce our carbon pollution enough to make a tangible difference in preserving our earth.
But this doesn't mean we shouldn't take these steps. Such actions by individual consumers can add up and influence industrial sectors to reduce the carbon emissions of our consumption-obsessed economies -- and influence states to create climate-protection policies. And only through these big-scale efforts from the government and the private sector will tangible progress be made for the environment.
