Fossil fuels and livestock are the problem. We will be much closer to the solution when are able to meet our energy needs from renewable energy sources and reduce meat production and consumption to sustainable levels.

This might require time and discipline, though. Replacing ordinary light bulbs with energy saving ones cost a small amount of money and is quickly done.
