Okay, I'll let this one stand, but don't open so many threads, Tom.

No single action is good enough by itself, but individual action is an absolute prerequisite if you want to be able to live with yourself. Who enjoys being complicit in this system?

OK, neven.
I sometimes feel torn between opening a new thread and making an OT post. I will try to error for the later.

I restricted myself to 3t of CO2 per year (since over 10 years now).

Whenever I come across something interesting, I look for a thread to fit it in. There are many threads here on the ASIF that have very interesting conversations, some dating from the time the forum was started back in 2013. They cover most major topics. Opening new threads covering the same broad topic (such as "Sea Level Rise") only serves to split further discussions and to lose the past discussions on the same subject.
In my 5 years on the forum I only ever found good reasons to open maybe a couple of threads, which arose out of discussions in existing threads that were so long that they derailed the original thread. These threads were opened by others participating in the same discussion, as me the newbie didn't want to disrupt the way of the wise people here. I still feel like a newbie compared to the level of some posters here, so I prefer to err on the side of caution.

Tom - If you found the need to start 24 new threads in 2 months, with quite a few of them immediately locked by Neven, I think your thread opening algorithm needs some major tuning. I know you mean well and I like your contributions, but this specific aspect I find disruptive.

serious consideration of Oren's post and acting upon it would be the best individual action that a zealous newbie could take ..
I for one am not convinced that Tom's methodology is anything less than deliberately disruptive . I too have survived here for some years and have found enough threads to post everything . Dilution of threads by multiplication and near duplication seems to be an easy way to weaken the Forum while appearing to add to it .. b.c.

for posting about "Individual action good, but not good enough", and corporate polluters there is

"Extinction Rebellion",
" What's New in Climate Change Acceptance and Action"
"BAU until they peel my cold dead hands from it"

and probably loads more.

I think its just a lazy brain, that finds something, chucks it at the forum in the easiest way possible and also has the satisfaction of another thread that belongs to him.

Ho hum. Another thread to ignore.

"may I interest you in this topic I show no indication I've read"

Individual action is the only thing individuals can do, as a group of people we might want to divest from those companies not taking this CC-thing seriously enough. Or do like the companies do and inform no votes nor money goes to politicians responsible for lax standards on environment.
