Do you think about climate change on a Daily/Weekly/Monthly basis? Curious what big 4 accountants feel as I await the next round of California fires.

Every day. I do everything I can to reduce my waste. Simple things like saying no to the plastic takeout utensils, bringing my own bags to the grocery store, making sure I am properly recycling, using glass Tupperware and a reusable water bottle, etc. We don’t need everyone to live a perfectly sustainable life. We just need everyone to imperfectly strive to do better.

If you’re worrying about climate change on a daily basis you need your head examined. “Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.” —Jesus (Matthew 6:34)

I honestly never think about it, I mean I try not to be wasteful. But I probably don’t actively think about it as a main thought more than once a year?

Almost never. Wildfires are natural.

If the poles thaw out to the extent that trees can grow in antarctica, the equatorial and temperate zones will become too hot and dry to support human life as we know it. Most ecosystems would be toast as well. Would you want to live through this kind of change?

AOC undermines its importance with how stupid she is. Any chance at the other side taking it seriously has been ruined by her

She really is a dope. So hard to fathom how she got elected and how anyone in congress can still listen to her speak.

Every day. I suspect I suffer from climate anxiety which is apparently common nowadays. It also doesn’t help to see people saying that they can’t do anything as an individual - unfortunately if 7.6 billion of us think that way, then it is true, we won’t change anything.

I think about it every day. I'd love to know how old people commenting in this thread are. I'd guess that the younger people are, the more they're worried about it.

I think about it a lot, but aside from trying not to be wasteful there's not a lot I can individually impact. I try to support companies that care when making purchases.

Daily. I was about to write a PhD on politics & climate change in 2014 & had to return to accounting to pay the bills.

Not at all. The day we want to wake up and smell the nuclear, maybe I will. I view the conversation of relying on wind and solar and phasing out oil as so fundamentally unserious that it deserves no attention.

like

KPMG 2 telling it like it is. “Oh we’re dying of climate change let’s use this opportunity to fund dumb ‘green’ energy sources instead of using the one that can actually meet our needs while being cleaner” It’s all performative. Nuclear isn’t “cool” so the Climate Crew (tm) can’t suggest it.

I think about it pretty often but I work primarily with energy clients

I spend no time thinking about it. I am not concerned about it at all and I think our government should do nothing about it.

I don't really think about it much. I eat plant-based, which I think helps the most, at the individual level, because I'm not eating animal products (cow farts, environmental impact of big agriculture, etc.).

Some former colleagues at Manager level at B4 left for IB jobs where they joined as Associates.
