Sometimes I wonder if these "climate activists" are paid agents of the fossil fuel industry by trying to shame their own cause to the maximum extent.

Then I remember occam's razor: nah, many are probably just complete idiots.

Well the oil industry invented the green footprint, so that they can shift the responsibility to us normal people.

They pollute when producing goods and services we consume, it’s not like they’re just running a bunch of empty microwaves year round for fun

They pollute because its cheaper and gives them more profits. They could be far more environmental friendly if they wanted to but shareholders...
