So to the belief that we can collectively do something to reverse the destructive trend – for each one of us that cares there are 1,000 people who either couldn’t give a toss or are unable to. Those are not very positive odds.
Always get a chuckle out of this argument. Too many people and we need to do something about it. You don't need permission to do something about it. If you feel so strongly about it you have the capacity to make us all proud.

But I suspect your actions despite your vigorous call for urgent action will reflect the title of that old country and western song ..."Everybody wants to go to Heaven; but nobody wants to go now."
