Seven Point Outline for Saving the Planet – Reddit
Reddit generated a lot of discussion over the past two weeks on this topic in a thread that began with a frustrated user asking “How do we save this f***ing planet?” Anonymous user “m4ybe” posted a detailed, seven-point response that caught fire. Even though we are not necessarily in agreement with some priorities and details, the list at least has a battle plan of actions we individually and together can take to keep our planet alive.
- Completely overhaul agriculture
- Eliminate non-recyclable single-use packaging or product
- Seriously address energy production
- Close any waste loops
- Utilize known and effective alternative building materials
- Change protein choices, increase sustainable protein production
- Subsidize and incentivize birth control
