People have a very warped sense of what personal actions help to reduce CO2 emissions.

Highly over-estimated effectiveness:
- No more plastic bags
- Regional/seasonal food

Highly underestimated:
- No more meat


@Cboy13 Looks like a massive case of confusing environmental catastrophe solutions with climate breakdown mitigations. Fewer plastic bags would be great (I don't know the figures but I do know they're dangerous in a number of ways, kind of a jack-of-all-trades when it comes to killing ocean life) but they're confusing *why* it would be great to reduce the quantities produced / in the ocean.
