Why does every environmental issue seem to be left to citizens to do on their own?
Every time I learn about a new environmental issue, there’s never a large-scale plan of any sort in place to address it. It’s always assumed that each one of us will take it upon himself or herself to do something about it. So a small percentage of folks end up doing a lot, and most everyone else does little. Some habits catch on as fads for a while, but then often fade away or are replaced by something else.
