Climate protests are becoming increasingly regular and their message appears to be aimed primarily at government.
However, we are all, protestors included, contributing to the problem by consuming food, energy, clothing and by moving around.
And while there are things governments could do, they appear to be largely damned if they do and damned if they don’t.
If for example, governments introduced bans on red meat consumption and fossil fuel use, things that would cut emissions but ground planes, most cars and shutdown many power stations, it is likely the protests would morph into larger ones of a different kind.
To what extent are protestors demanding something they couldn’t stomach? And isn’t the problem ultimately largely ours to solve?
