8. When people realize it is based on their personal consumption, only then will it change.

Even if we engineer bridges to the renewable future, we still have huge numbers of people turning on to the modern lifestyle. China and India are still only in their beginning stages.

It's not somebody else's problem. You are in control of it. It means "not doing something". It is a problem, and it's going to take effort to change it.
