Good article. Brad, I don't know what to do either. The more I research, the more absurd, infuriating and discouraging it is.

I used to be in Capital markets as they say, for 20 years working for a major Wall Street firm, blind as a bat.... I quit my corporate job in 2012 went to a not-for-profit and quit that in 2016 when I realized there is no such thing anymore in Neo-liberalism.

We then sold everything, settled debts and now we are trying to live as frugally (energy-wise) as we can. Renovated an old RV, solar on top, water filtration inside with our 2 dogs on public land. Small insignificant self-serving steps maybe, but at least I can look at my kids (and maybe grandkids later) in the eye and tell them I stopped participating in this madness as much as I could, when I finally realized how screwed we all really are. sigh....Now I'm trying to speak truth in case anyone is paying attention to insignificant little old me and I spend time hugging every tree I can find between the tears, the grief and the anger that washes over me periodically.
