A Personal (Albeit Petty) Concern I Have About Alternative Fuels

Hello. Something you guys need to know about me is that I choose to live a very indulgent and decadent lifestyle. I am a self-proclaimed slut and a very materialistic person. I treat myself to luxorious bathes, an extremely cushy and warm bed, and long, impulsive shopping trips.

Now, despite my lifestyle, I am a very progressive person. Being bisexual, an effeminate male, and Jewish, I believe in social Liberalism and in the rights of women and minorities. I also disagree with regime change wars, and our nation's broken healthcare and student debt systems.

But another issue many Progressives believe in is combating climate change. And as much as I believe in the existence and threat of climate change, it just fails to grab my interest. Don't get me wrong, I deeply appreciate and am inspired by the works of people like Jay Inslee and Greta Thunberg, but I myself don't feel the need to discuss climate change myself as it simply fails to fascinate me like LGBTQIA+ rights or medicare for all does.

However, that's not what this post is mainly about. I know that one of the best ways to prevent climate change is to find an enviormentally friendly alternative to harmful chemicals that enter the air such as Co2. But what worries me is that those alternatives won't be as good at fueling my decadent lifestyle as the current fuels are.

I get that this sounds gross and selfish. I get that I shouldn't be so Hedonistic, but like, I love being super lavish and indulgent. Please tell me the truth, don't hide it from me to make me feel less worried.
