How to reduce our carbon footprint by a massive 75% and do away with the carbon tax.
I'd like to hear from the believers of global warming why they are not protesting for the following to be implemented.
All white goods (fridges freezers cookers washing machines etc) must be designed to last for twenty years, if they fail during this time the customer
gets a free repair or their money back.
In the uk the average life of a car before serious problems start occuring is about 10 years. Just like white goods they should last twenty years
minimum. Tell manufacturers - Twenty years or its repaired for free.
Shouldn't we be making clothes that will last years rather than weeks? I remember when a new pair of levi's felt like cardboard because they were made
from such heavy denim, but now, not only are they lightweight, they are also partly worn out..I mean stonewashed.
Tell manufacturers - Make clothes that last five years minimum or we get our money back.
The amount of packaging used for food products is just rediculous. Look on the shelves in the stores and what do you see? mountains of packaging!
Where are the global warming police? surely they should be arresting these wasters of OUR resources? I'm serious!!
I could go on..
So what are you global warming believers doing about the above?
If the world realy is in serious trouble then I'm sure we'd all agree that a 75% reduction in resources and power is far more important than carbon
Manufacturing ALL the above to last 20 years (5 years clothing) is EASILY done.
It was a chat with a couple of appliance engineers that got me thinking about all this because both told me the same thing "Appliances are designed to
have a trouble free life of just five years". I've also worked in the motor trade and I know how easy it is to make vehicles that are more reliable
and longer lasting.
By making products that last 20 years instead of five, we reduce energy and resource consumption by 75%. That should also reduce the carbon footprint
We the consumer spend less and enjoy trouble free usage of the appliances we buy.
Some very large and wealthy corporations would have reduced profits.
Is this not the miraculous answer you've all been waiting for?
It realy is EASILY possible.
All that has to be done is for our governments to tell manufacturers -
MAKE IT LAST TWENTY YEARS OR THE CUSOMER GETS THEIR MONEY BACK.
Result = 75% reduction of resources and energy used. 75% smaller carbon foot print
Going by some replies I should make it clear I do NOT believe in man made global warming.
