What can scientists do?  Perhaps a little more! 

Here's an amusing example: a certain Australian marine science
institution (that shall remain nameless!) which issues dire warnings
about the impacts of climate change. Situated approx 50km from the city
where most of its staff live they use a fleet of around 50 large
government cars to make the return trip each day. Any suggestions that
they would reduce greenhouse gases and costs by using a couple of
coaches instead are met with howls of protest and intricate arguments
that suggest that it would somehow cost more!
