I am not an eco warrior. I just switch off air conditioning and the lights after use at work even when no one is watching. I use a disposable fabric bag for shopping and mostly refuse the offer of the plastic bag in stores. I wear clothes until they literally fall to pieces, some are 10-15 years old. I do attempt to ride a bicycle, but must confess that the motorbike is used more often: peddling in near 40 degree heat feels like getting each mile closer to the heart attack, and the traffic conditions would send any Western person into the panic mode.
I hate waste of any kind: food waste, energy waste, materials and resources waste. I cut the tubes of hand cream and toothpaste in half in order to extract the last bits. I mend things if at all possible, such as fixing my motor helmet with plastic ties, and re-wiring the fan. I don’t think it has affected the safety.
This probably makes me a cheapskate, but so what.
My son resembles me in many ways. He refused to have a mobile phone until he started his uni. He doesn’t want to learn to drive. I hear this is a generational gap, i.e. many millennials have a similar attitude to cars. But he hates cycling, so instead he walks shorter distances and uses public transport for longer trips. He can last on 100 bucks for a month food-wise and fixes his own shoes.
We don’t do this because we have an environmentalist mindset. We do this because it is common sense: not to use what you don’t need, and make what you need – last longer.
I would like to support, in my tiny way, those who speak of truth. This can be in any area of human existence, and in this particular case it is on the subject of the green energy scam. I often asked myself how much energy goes into the production of solar panels, for instance. And who exactly finances environmental activism groups, because any kind of activity requires funds, right? And what are those big names in the field of green energy and environment REALLY up to?
Well.. as always, when one starts digging for true facts, the picture that emerges is far from optimistic. There is one basic premise I uphold when wanting to get to the bottom of things: follow the money. Trace the money trail, and you will know the true state of every situation, be it Covid-19 or bio fuels or the Bidens in the Ukraine or… anything at all.
Below is something worth 1 hour and 40 minutes of your time. It was made available on Youtube for free for the next 30 days (I think from the 21st of April).
You may not be interested in the environment as a subject of discussion, but you will be interested in what is laid out in this documentary; it is not your usual spiel on slamming the destruction and the virtues of environmental protection. It is about the environmentalism itself having become part of the money-making and political bonus points making scheme. Some of it beggars belief, and if it hadn’t been supported by Michael Moore, one of the heavyweights of film-making and activism… I doubt this would have seen the light of day.
Observe also how the well-known personalities lie through their teeth. It is quite absorbing to watch.
Take your time.
