Saving the world
The Donald is about to engage in planetary destruction, and so are the Australians and Canadians, who are now so far to the right on green issues, one can only throw one’s hands up in the air in exasperation. Note: The blame for all this, as per my long and overdue forthcoming blog post, lies with a mix of terrorism and precious snowflakes who laid the foundations for a massive swing to the right. (A fact that all my intelligent friends concur with, it’s not just my opinion.)
Anyway, if you are so angry, don’t use your gasoline powered car!
Vote with your wallet, and bankrupt the oil industry by not buying their awful dirty nasty.
After all, being a lefty, you’ll quickly boycott an orange if it’s from Israel (despite it being good for you and employing Palestinians and helping turn desert into arable land, no pun intended), so if you want to prove how righteous you are, do the same as alcoholics are supposed to do in order to stop consuming their favourite poison – go 100% teetotoil*.
Fight blackstuff club: Don’t buy any! Simples. What do you mean you have to drive to work? No you don’t, use Google maps and plot a cycling route if you cannot buy a Gogoro in the USA yet. Or walk – or skateboard – or inline skate. (I used to inline skate to work in London, fabulous aerobic workout!) You’ll be able to #SayNoToFatBottom too!
*See what I did there? 🙂
