Why did these architects become full-time climate change activists?


‘Murphy’ has made some good points about population, species and the excessive use of road vehicles I think, and has made responsible personal choices with no-flying and little-meat policies etc - but like most people doesn’t seem to fully appreciate the enormous energy cuts that can be achieved by wholesale efficiency improvements. Yes this still leaves food, population and biodiversity problems etc, and implementation of deep efficiency measures across all sectors is a gigantic task, but given the current human population level, it’s something we must do if we and most of life on Earth is to survive. Murphy I think you actually share a lot with the protesting youngsters so I wish you’d stop kicking out at them. If the older generations would only create the right conditions, I believe they’re ready to knuckle down and passionately do the job that oldies have generally failed to do!
