Well there you go! I read that blog action day – whatever that is – is due for the 15th Oct. Not only is it blog action day, but it’s all been arranged that we rap about the environment.
Every blogger will post about the environment in their own way and relating to their own topic. Our aim is to get everyone talking towards a better future.
Hey dudes, we’re so cool we must be in favour of the environment.
Well I guess I’m in favour of the environment, but I’m not to keen on a lot of environmentalism.
There are some really serious environmental challenges we face and I’m not that optimistic of our being able to respond properly. That’s global warming I’m talking about there. How exactly are we going to get India and China into the tent when we’ve spent more than a decade saying that of course they’re poor so it would be impolite to ask or even to bribe them to do something.
Whether all the hype and nonsense about so many other environmental issues (kerbside recycling and reducing waste to landfill being my favourite amongst many peeves) helps or hinders is anyone’s guess. But it sure is irritating.
Then again, it’s still important to avoid the fate of Peter Walsh who was our finest finance minister now reduced to the ratbaggery of the Lavoisier Group because (I’m guessing) his irritations got the better of him.
