All these horrific storms, strong winds and people’s houses being blown apart etc is all over the news at the moment so obviously many people are aware of it.
I was debating this issue in the hour break between lectures with Jess.
Really – why are people surprised this is happening? Record worst storms for 17 years etc. Did they really not see it coming. We’re warming up the planet at a rate of knots. I think eventually the human race with eventually end up wiping itself out.
Also we’e not doing a lot to stop the planet warming up or changing the weather conditions. Ok many more places are becoming more ‘green’ and getting into recycling but there should be a law on it. It’s shouldnt be optional to put your plastic in a recycling bag or collection place. So much energy is saved just be re-using plstic milk containers or glass jars.
Another thing – we should make use of all this wind. One wind turbine on the roof of the average factor will keep its power going without using any other electricity. This should be compulsory. It should be the top of the governments agenda – to save on power by using wind turbines, making solar panels or similar for people to use in the houses, using in large offices or schools.
Something I feel quite passionately about is the complete waste of money on ‘new shopping centres, car parks, re-paving city centres’ all this malarkey. Billions could be spent on actually stopping peolpe using at much energy, or not using their cars as much.
