Walk or bike to work once a week, wash your clothes in cold water, take fewer international flights, go vegan, kill your first born. These are easily accessible solutions for everyone that are sure to make a significant difference if not solve the problem outright.
Note: I have voted for Jack Layton's party. I liked Jack Layton.
But I think politicians should be kept humble, and spraying them with water guns when they don't expect it and are wearing fancy suits has got to help keep them humble.
