Example: Effectiveness of personal greenhouse reduction vs donation.

Basically: You want to reduce the chances of us dying horribly through global warming. What do?

The answer turns out to not really be "Try to reduce your personal carbon footprint" and more "Devote your spare financial resources to helping others reduce their carbon footprint", because there are a lot of places which are much more cost effective to spend your money than where you currently are.
