I don't think he is personally attacking you, he is attacking the reality that you are an American, which means that unless you live 100% off-the-grid you have an unsustainable footprint.

Simply using basic services we have developed and take for granted spawn from unsustainable processes. He's just trying to demystify the ideology many Americans have that if they shop at the CO-OP and ride their bicycle to work they magically become exempt from the over-consumption conversation. Not saying that those things don't make a difference or that you should just be apathetic, it's just important to realize you are likely buying into "green" propaganda.
