Also Earth Hour sadly puts all the burden on individuals. It's your fault and my fault that we're in this situation. Conveniently there's no challenge to the corporations that are actually fueling climate change and selling us things that we don't need.

Sure, I as an individual should definitely shoulder some of the blame. But walking, riding my bike and taking the bus everyday and turning off lights and avoiding air travel and eating locally won't get Canada anywhere on climate change.

It's time we all do our part and that means hitting corporations hard since they are actually responsible for the most emissions.

Oh wait, like sprawl and aerotropolis, that would hurt the economy so that's out. Sorry it's just easier to blame the individual.
