I am sick to the hind teeth of all this crap about Global Warming, being Environmentally Friendly and being Eco-Aware.
It’s all you hear about now. It has become a politically correct bandwagon that reeks of smugness.
For example, I have seen items about "Eco friendly driving lessons" For f*ck’s sake, what is that about? If you want to be so eco-friendly, don’t drive. I read a full spread in a magazine yesterday, telling me how to have an environmentally friendly Christmas. They can f*ck off. And advertisement isn’t an advertisement unless it is spouting about how it is more environmentally aware than its competitors.
I have had a bellyful.
Why should I care, when the sky is full of jet aircraft. Why should I care, when industry pumps millions of tons of pollution into the air? Why should I care, when the real polluters don’t?
So. Until the Big Boys get their act together, I’m converting my car to leaded petrol. I’m going to burn all my rubbish [especially plastic] in my garden. I’m going to hack down half a forest until I find the right Christmas tree for me. I’m going to burn good old coal in my fireplace. I’m going to drastically increase my consumption of beans, cabbage and onions to produce as much methane as possible.
Even if I manage all that, I doubt I’ll do as much damage in a year as a single flight by some Environment Minister going to some trivial meeting somewhere.
F*ck this. I’m off to find myself an oil refinery.
