Big oil coined the phrase ‘carbon footprint’ to blame us for their greed – and while climate-conscious individual choices are good, they’re not nearly enough to save the planet. More than personal virtue, we need collective action, writes columnist Rebecca Solnit.

In her latest piece for @guardian_us, she looks at how “the very short counterargument that individual acts of thrift and abstinence … won’t get us the huge distance we need to go in this decade”.

We need to exit the age of fossil fuels, reinvent our energy landscape, rethink how we do almost everything.

“The revolution won’t happen by people staying home and being good.”
