Canada has 30M people... I just wonder how much of a global impact (that is why we want to be greener, right?) that really has?

Don't get me wrong, I do almost all of the things that the author takes part in (I think most of us do, to some extent), but with 7B people in the world, it only seems like a difference could be made if a) much, much more than .429% (and that's the FULL Canadian population) of the world's population chipped in, and b) the major polluters got on board.

It seems to me (and I could be wrong!) that unless China, USA, EU & India (combined 61.26% of total emissions) get on board in a BIG WAY, our contributions amount to very little other than making ourselves feel better a night. That's not to say that I think it's all pointless, as every little bit helps, but it seems to be a bit of a "drop in the bucket" type situation.

And I totally agree with author about the "tiny steps" thing; I feel like, one way or another, we're all getting greener as time goes one. Which can't be too bad of a thing.
