These people are very inspiring!

I guess that it shows that, up to a certain point, our time is better spent on the big issues; it is better to spend an hour working at organizing a local environmental group, giving talks in schools or talking to the media about important issues than an hour obsessing over recycling 5 more coke cans and composting cat hair.
