News from the Natural World: Can’t foreigners change instead? Ask all Westerners faced with self-inflicted ecological disaster.
All of the scientific evidence points to the fact that the overwhelming cause of the ecological disaster is the Western World. One leading human climate scientist says emissions could be cut by a third within a year if well-off westerners changed their lifestyle. In fact, global carbon emissions could be cut by one-third within 12 months if affluent westerners changed their way of life immediately. More than half of the carbon dioxide pollution that causes a large part of global warming comes from the 10% best-off people on the planet.
However, this really doesn’t fit with the narrative of the western world. Their narrative is that consumers need to keep buying more and more and that profits need to grow and grow. They argue that the natural world is something that happens in foreign countries. In addition, the really good animals aren’t in the western world and the bits that need to be protected are in other foreign countries. They urge people to donate to charities in foreign countries and blame the developing world whilst simultaneously presiding over the greatest ecological collapse the world has ever seen.

Can’t Foreigners Change Instead?
It became apparent that Westerners really didn’t think it would be them that would have to change. After a comprehensive review of all Westerners, it was discovered that not a single one thought that they already had enough things and didn’t need anything else. In fact, all of them questioned why they had to change at all;
“Look I’m prepared to buy the odd carton of oat milk, eat vegetarian sausages at a BBQ every now and then and fly a little bit less. But I’m really not prepared to go without my annual skiing holiday. Also, I certainly don’t want to have to sell one of the cars. And I really don’t want to stop ordering an endless stream of non-fulfilling material goods from Amazon. Honestly, I’m all on board with the conservation movement. I like the right accounts on Instagram and tell everyone really loudly when I buy a really expensive bamboo toothbrush. But I didn’t think I’d actually have to change my lifestyle. Can’t foreigners change instead?”
So there you have it all Westerners faced with self-inflicted ecological disaster have asked that foreigners need to change instead.
