Recently at a supermarket I asked the checkout individual for a plastic bag.
She replied “We don’t use plastic bags here”.
An elderly lady said “When they do that, just leave all the groceries there and walk out”.
Unfortunately I’d already paid.
I was on my motorcycle and wondered how I was going to ride home and hold bacon, jersey caramels, musk sticks, and a block of Old Jamaica.
I may be a clown, but that doesn’t mean I can juggle!
The whole ride home I’m staring into the rear vision mirrors thinking “Did I just drop the bacon?....... Is that a block of Old Jamaica back there?..... I can’t feel my jersey caramels!!!”
Am I the only one thinking being environmentally friendly is becoming a little unfriendly, even silly?
I even saw an ad on YouTube, and I already hate ads on YouTube, of Arnold Schwarzenegger telling us to eat less meat. I’ll be boggled!
But the greenest zealot, who got the environmental ball rolling, which is very good, has unfortunately, like many greenies, turned being green into a religion, complete with dogma and prophecies that have been anything but infallible. Prophetically he calls himself “Sting”.
Sting’s unbelievably luxurious lifestyle is no longer news, but Sting tells us to live on less and taught the destruction of the Amazon rainforest could be stopped by contributing money to The Rainforest Foundation.
He neglected to disclose the foundation was founded by himself, his then girlfriend, and friend Jean Pierre Dutilleux and that it’s main office was Sting's house in London.
We’re being told the bottom of the ocean is practically covered in plastic bags and the fish are all dying.
My lack of plastic bags has me worried that the lack of accurate data in climate change discussions is an inconvenient truth.Father Brendan Lee.
Unfortunately many are believing this tripe - hook, line and sinker. I saw a “save the planet” show on TV which taught we are using 60 times more water than needed to flush the toilet.
How did they come up with this scientific figure of 60? Did they actually flush a toilet with 1/60th of the usual amount of water? What was their test tube? Standard-sized Royal Doulton or a drinking straw? Onesies or twosies?
Enough of this… experiment. My lack of plastic bags has me worried that the lack of accurate data in climate change discussions is an inconvenient truth.
