DO NOT THINK YOU ARE SAVING THE PLANET!

 Lately, we’ve been too smug about too much:

  1. We have only one modest car.
  2. We save water and electricity, (a bit. The hot water is solar heated.)
  3. We live in a place with no army.
  4. We avoid packaged foods

.      and so on.

 

Yesterday, I decided to log everything I did that used nature’s resources. This ignores all the resources already despoiled to build your house, car and the rest.

 

I gave up after only one hour.

Try it.

1-        04. 50 turned on the light.

2-         Had a wash

3-        Drove to an Olympic sized pool

4-        Showered

5-        Swam

6-        Rinsed out swimsuit

7-        Drove back

8-        Made coffee

 

Our lives destroy the planet. Every little action uses energy or other resources.

Only bush people and jungle tribes live in harmony with nature. Let’s not kid ourselves.
