Actual NY Times headline: "The Biggest Carbon Sin - Air Travel"

The Biggest Carbon Sin - Air Travel -

And he says, 'I'm talking about personal.' What I'm thinking in my head is, 'Well, the truth is, Brian, we can't solve global warming because I f---ing changed light bulbs in my house. It's because of something collective'.
