I am pig sick of hearing about the destruction of our environment. Please, I am nearly old. We were concerned about the environment in Social Studies in Form 4a at school in the 1970s. It has caused me sleepness nights at times. For my whole life I have had to worry about the environment. Neither Labor nor Liberal parties do anything else but pay lip service. It is in my blood to direct my voting preferences to Labor, but I vote for the Greens whenever I get the opportunity to vote. Makes no effing difference.
All this nonsense about lower power consumption light bulbs that take such a high energy input to construct, the decentralisation of water supply with home water tanks that remain empty when it doesn't rain and short of water, never mind putting too many people into cities where there is insufficient water, let alone any other services.
We are lectured that we must act as individuals to reduce our (I hate these two words) carbon footprint.
This is not up to me and it is not up to you and nor is it up to business. It is up to governments to control, to regulate, to innovate and to fix the blasted environment where we live.
In the big picture, we twenty odd million people in Australia have little effect on the world's environment. Of course we, through our governments must act, if only to set an example, but we can't even do that!
