Attitudes of less emissions

Our preference is always to point out what "others" need to do to reduce emissions.

I propose that we assess what each of us is doing by answering the following 3 questions.

1. Car

Do we buy a "big", "stylish", powerful car or do we prefer to choose a small one that generates less emissions to be produced and, later during its useful life, which also consumes less fuel?

2. Air conditioning

Do we install air conditioning in our home to maintain an optimal degree of comfort or do we just choose ventilation to reduce energy consumption and emissions?

3. Bath

Do we use showers that consume electricity/gas or do we install solar heaters that "use" the sun primarily?

Along the same lines, questions could be asked at a "macro" level. For example, will Brazil take vigorous initiatives to reduce emissions or will it prefer to appeal to rich countries" to foot the bill" just as a list of politicians and public managers advocates?
