Now that I have your attention . . .

1 - idiot politicians are not the problem and likewise not the solution

2 - Gigantic Evil-Co in all its many forms e.g. Exxon-Mobil, BP, Monsanto, the Koch brothers - while a blight upon the face of the planet, are not the problem, and by definition are not the solution.

3 - Bono, Band-Aid, Bob Geldof and any other celebrity spokes-models are not the problem, and not the solution.

4 - climate change deniers, Flat Earthers, Creationists, One World Government Conspirators and all the many flakes and nuts that abound on the Internet are not the problem.

So, (drum-roll, please . . . ) who is the problem?

Why, you, gentle reader. Your behaviour, your choices and your actions determine the way of the world.

If you protest climate change while driving your fat-ass self in your fat-ass SUV to the Timmies drive-through on a regular basis, feel free to choose your favorite synonym from the list above.

If you buy gawd-awful tomatoes imported from Mexican greenhouses in January, feel free to choose . . .

If you buy from Wally-Mart (see list item 8) or any of the other 'big-box' bargain outlets that specialize in cheap crap imported from third-world sweat shops, feel free to choose . . .

If you have ever lined up for the privilege of buying the latest shiny piece of crap from the Fruit Company or the Swedish furniture-makers, feel free to choose . . .

And if you do all that, and still complain that 'someone should do something', you OWN the list.
