Since I was a teenager I've been worried about climate change, this led me to reduce my CO2 emissions, consumerism, and waste as much as possible; I do the best I can to not use my car, plastic bags, straws or bottles, re-use water and many other actions that I think can help.
However, every couple months I still read a new article stating that we are even closer than we thought to the point of no-return, even a few say we are already past it.
As a father I'm really worried about my children's future, and cannot avoid feeling overwhelmed by the fact that even if I do my best I just cannot fight against huge corporations that does not want to do the best they can to help climate change.
A couple days ago I read this http://carbon.ycombinator.com/ in HN's frontpage and got amazed about such creative and smart solutions, and cannot stop wondering what can I do to proactively help any of those, or any other idea, become true and help to repair the damage.
Sadly I'm just a Software Engineer and I feel that I cannot help as, for example, a Genetic Engineer to make those ideas become true. I'm not a genius, nor a millionaire philanthropist, neither a clever startup founder.
Is there anything I, a normal person, can do to actually help?
Thank you for reading me.
