DO NOT THINK YOU ARE SAVING THE PLANET!
Lately, we’ve been too smug about too much:
- We have only one modest car.
- We save water and electricity, (a bit. The hot water is solar heated.)
- We live in a place with no army.
- 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.
1- 04. 50 turned on the light.
2- Had a wash
3- Drove to an Olympic sized pool
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.
