Does the blight of mindless acquisitiveness need to be addressed BEFORE offsetting energy use

Details


RANT: Have we forgotten the REDUCE prong of the Three Rs? Why do many people dispose of their mobile phones every year in their struggle to keep up with the Jones? Why do people in the first world buy so much bottled water rather than just refil their Coke Bottles? Why don't people use hankies instead of tissues? Are people more unduly hyprochrondic these days and do they need a wake up call today given stretched resources? Is it politic to "let it mellow if it's yellow" while travelling? Do we have too many means of communication, yet nothing but mindless dross to relay?
