We can all do our bit at grass-roots.

Eat less or no meat. No more lamb soup curries thank you very much, or yakitori with your partners. If you need the meat-like fix, soy based meats are very good. I regularly make a British style cottage pie using soy mince easily bought in my local supermarket, here in Tokyo (where I live).

No more unnecessary travel on frivolous vacations. Traversing the country (say Osaka to Sapporo) by plane, train, Shinkansen etc frequently to vacation with friends who have possibly travelled even further is environmentally irresponsible, immature and regressive.

If more people did the above, then we would be stepping in the right direction.
