real talk:
climate change is serious, and we need to take serious, large-scale action to mitigate it.
when i say :bancars: #bancars , this is shorthand. but: don't be stressing about your personal issues, *like that guardian article says*, addressing climate change is about society-wide choices. and as a society, we have chosen cars to transport us. this is not about you, or your job, or your kids.
reliance on personal automobiles needs to stop at the society level. this is not about you.

@t54r4n1 I don’t think cars make 10% of the pollution that the world creates- it’s mostly industrial facilities and commercial vehicles (trucks, planes, cruise liners, cargo ships, etc) isn’t it?

@t54r4n1 its the same thing to me as home composting vs industrial composting- the latter makes huge difference but the former is barely a dent

@t54r4n1 if we want to talk about reorganizing cities and work to not need cards then that’s fine, connecting people in communities is a noble goal. Huge effort that would span centuries though.

@t54r4n1 there are many folks who live very far from work because of affordability and it seems a bit privileged to say they can no longer be employed because cars are banned

@mattdkerr that's why this I'm talking about society, not individuals.
