It's a shared responsibility, and that old saw of "70% of emissions are produced by 100 corporations so we can't really affect things at all" is just plain wrong.
    It is not wrong; the people who care are already trying, and aren't really affecting things at all. Instead, such attempts are, as you put it, "asking them" to no avail. Hence, my conclusion: we should stop "asking" them.

    ETA: Also, someone should make a new thread. I'm out,i believe.

    To be fair the people going further than just asking aren't really making a good name for themselves.

    Honestly the best way to protest, like any time money is somehow involved, is to vote with wallets. Sadly a variety of methods that should be useful here, like electric cars, aren't (most sadly aren't charged via green power). So social distancing permitting I'll spend my money on public transportation where possible, I'm making repeated attempts to cook more vegetarian and vegan food, and. I'm strictly limiting how much I have the heating on (but that's also due to not having a ton of free money). But nobody here is required to do anything, or required to not do anything (even if it's just shouting 'will you stop').
