I loved the two diagrams next to each other showing the difference between global and personal. Also, good ideas for how to talk with and convince people that do not belong to traditional environmentalist groups, that this is important for them too was very helpful.

Thank you. Wise words and a great collection of ideas for encouraging people to keep going when things are looking difficult.

Thanks so much Kimberly. I fully acknowledge my individual impact as one of the 10% and I am making choices to not fly, as you taught me in your book. However, my husband doesn't see it the same way. His reasoning is that the flight will still take off, with or without me. Other than the fact that I am "role modelling" restraint and dedication to my personal footprint, what else can I say?

Thank you for this. It's weird to think combined my partner snd I are in thr global 10%!! Totally changes my perspective. We eat whole foods plant based and most of that is food grown within 20km. I didnt have children. The big one for me is flying. I live in different country than my family and my mom isnt well so I am doing long haul trips (15 hrs) about 3 to 4x a year now, when it used to be once every 2 years. I am privileged to be able to visit my mom in this transitional time, but I'm very aware of my impact. Are there any real offsetting programs? Once my mom dies I wont be doing those trips.

Thanks for the flying pie chart. I always have this conversation with my friends in Romania too. I just shared your newsletter on fb.
