Andy, thanks for reminding us of the importance of conservation and individual action. I agree that the pendulum has swung too far to systems change when we need both systems and individual change working synergistically together. I'm writing a book (and on Medium) on this topic, centered around reorienting our lives around the places where we live. I lay out how to move towards regional self-reliance that promotes conservation and many other benefits. Your insights and sharing of your conversation with Akshat are most valuable.
