The advice we get is too simplistic

When I was a kid, I remember being told that what I can do to “save the environment” was to turn the water off when I brush my teeth and to turn off the lights when leaving a room. This advice seemed a laughably inadequate response to the factories, trucks, planes, roads, and buildings I saw spewing pollution all around. The idea was: small, simple actions can make a difference if everyone does it. This is true, but it isn’t working.

Most of the advice we hear about how to stop global warming…
