The first priority for society as a whole is to drastically reduce consumption of fossil fuel energy and products derived from fossil fuels. The key action is to curtail. That means buying less, using less, wanting less and wasting less. To curtail means to cut back or to downsize. Curtail reflects the seriousness of the current situation more than the politically acceptable word "conserve." -- Pat Murphy
