as much as you can

That's the important part of the quote. Most people are kind of stuck in the larger choices that society makes, and I mean they don't have a real choice if they want to live a half-way normal life. Individual choices can play a real role in highlighting policies and possibilities, but in the end, public policy guides what is practical for most people.

It's deeper  than that. It's the outright refusal to accept and shoulder the dictates of one's own chosen ideals because of the pain and discomfort that would attend actually doing so, while one waits to use govt to make *other* people do so...in order to reduce the pain for the holder of the ideas.

Here we go again, listening to a person who was born blind telling us what the world looks like.

Eventually, we will board a bullet train that crosses the Cascades.  We will get off at a station where hydrogen powered vehicles are located.  We will swipe our credit card and enter the car we have reserved, and reach the trailhead.

Everyone who professes environmentalism would use the system.  You and Treeswarper would not, of course, you would still be in your F350s.

The reason a system like this does not exist now is because of people like you.  Which sure is handy when you want to whine about hypocrisy.
