Heat's Up, How Are We Going To Fix It?

Oh yes, all of us !

We have all done it, are all doing it and will all still do it in the future. No, not that ( well, of course 'that ' as well ), but our complaining about the weather.

Gee Whizz, it is hot. Here and it seems all over. Natural disasters seem more common place these days. Don't you also catch yourself saying " There by the grace of God..."

When you listen closely to various conversations, you can hear the words global warming. At times it is mumbled and hestitant, but there nonetheless.

Personally, I think we all need to change our mind set. It is no longer important who caused it, or is causing it, but what are we going to do about it. We are not children. This incessant finger pointing: " He started it first..." or " he's doing more of it than me " is so besides the point.

There are so many little changes we can make. Here are just a few:

  • We can ( re ) cycle.
  • Make a shopping list and that way we don't have to drive twice. If nothing else, think of the money we'll save on petrol !
  • If stuff breaks, do we get it mended or do we just throw it away and buy afresh ?
  • We can eat less meat.
  • Go on holiday in our own neck of the woods. Apart from anything else, it is much less stressful !
  • ......

Look, if we all do at least one green thing each day ( here is a past blog with more tips ), that will make a huge difference...
