November '07 - The Environment.
always been sceptical about global warming
and anything to do with the environment. The
problem is I remember being told that we will
all run out of fossil fuels before the year
2000 grinding the modern world to a halt, and
being told that the hole in the ozone layer
will kill us all within a few years. None of
this has happened and the hole in the ozone
layer is still there.
a scientist, but there are a lot of
scientists that say golbal warming is true so
I think the safe thing would be to asume that
it is then do something practial to stop it.
way politicians, environmentalists and people
using it as some kind of fasionable concern
that I object to. Suddenly there is a new
buzzword called Carbon Footprint that is
being bantered around, this word will all
likely be replaced by another in a few years.
want to be told that switching my TV off
instead of leaving it on standby will somehow
save the planet, while celebrities that know
nothing about the environment travel to the
north pole by private plane and talk about
how it is melting because I'm too lazy to get

shopping bags they provide, I then use each
bag as a bin liner for my kitchen bin. But
apparently lots of people do the same and
there are lots of plastic bags full of
rubbish in land fill sites. So a lot of
environmentalist groups are calling for a ban
on the free bags and people will have to
purchase the more expensive bags. The free
ones are thin and biodegradable. This means
that people will have to buy bin liners as
well which will end up full of rubbish and on
the land fill site so it will make no
difference. It's a half-arsed approach that
hasn't been thought through.
so much that golbal warming isn't true
because the fake evironmentalists are just
using it as something fashionable to care
about while the real environmentalists are
probably aware that we are all doomed.
