Collective Action

Ezra's right that enviro groups should add suggesting people eat less meat to their basic, uh, menu, but it's also important to realize that while individual lifestyle decisions can have a major impact, the carbon problem is still something that needs to be addressed through collective action. It's great if people choose to find ways to reduce their carbon footprint, but it's no substitute for comprehensive policy on the issue. Not that I think he's suggesting otherwise.
