But when you really look at the reasons we need these resources, DO WE?
How many millions of people travel every day, wasting tons of fuel, for a job they could do from home, or from a regional hub? How many trashy little
wastes of plastic are produced every year, things that we DO NOT NEED? How much needless packaging is produced and then discarded by ignorant Humans
every single day? How many fuel sources and efficiency methods are ignored because powerful corporations making billions a year suppress their
production and use? How many high-rise buildings sit empty every night, lights on, air con blowing, and how many of those buildings are actually
needed to begin with? How many millions of people get in a gas-guzzling car on their own every day to travel less than a mile? How many of them COULD
be giving up a seat to others so they don't waste fuel doing exactly the same thing and going to exactly the same place?
There are a thousand and one ways in which we could all limit waste and use. There is a big difference between NEED and WANT. What we actually NEED is
some tight controls on corruption and greed, and a concerted effort across the board to not only reduce use, but increase efficiency and develop
There is no single solution, but from what I can see we have done bugger all to change anything. With so many options open to us, recycling is the
LEAST we should be doing and really all that has been achieved - and that was only really achieved because of corporate greed.
