Hey, Drain Buster - try your skill at waste disposal.

Hey, Drain Buster - try your skill at waste disposal.

More important than food, if you are not starving; more important than children, if you are currently without; the sustainability of civilisation from the ancients to the International Space Station, is connected to waste and recycling, whether it is water or solid obstructions. Here is a compendium of current problems caused by yours truly in his or her own home.

Hey, Drain Buster - try your skill at waste disposal.

Wrap up this Christmas?

The aim of Christmas is to give, rather than encourage any religious sentiment for the vast majority of people. To take from the environment now seems likely if the most attractive and shiny Xmas wraps are used on presents. If you can scrunch your paper and it doesn’t spring back at you, then that paper can be recycled, as we hope most of it will be. If not --- read on and give liberally-to the environment.

When they look back at us, will they laugh, or just point at achievements that led to a future of eco-living, wildlife management that works and fossils that belong only in museums.

We rarely enter the world of music, unless it’s about whale song, but here is a topical thought on the forthcoming Earth Hour (March 28th.) James King sings a thoroughly sustainable song with a matching video for you. Enjoy the sounds and the sights.

Who is right? The avid deforester who seems to have converted to conservation, or the NGOs who claim that corruption and illegal encroachment will devastate what is left of the rainforests.

Losing The Wildlife In Your Woods?

Losing The Wildlife In Your Woods?

To be truly green, there has to be a twitch of a wing in your garden, or a familiar long walk in the hills. Your lifestyle may be sustainable, but what is the point without native plants and creatures to lighten your mood?

A few have made the step to electric or hybrid cars. More will be following, but how will the next generation of green cars be accepted. Despite the tearing out of hair by oil companies, there are now many subsidies and grants designed to clean up the city especially, and the countries too. Plus your fuel costs are very low, and the silence is amazing. Just listen to that audio.

Can these 2 people influence those whose job it is to change our direction? They are very different, but can agree on one decision that we all need to make: the way we fail to sustain the earth has to be reversed. Then we can achieve survival, let alone that of all the other species we need in this environment we shame so much.

How can science cope with the vast expanses of maritime area and all the problems the oceans have? Employ everybody who’s out there, that’s how. Sailors and lubbers, sinners and saints can all join in to add to the desperately deficient data. We do need to know what and why, how and why the denizens of the deep are coping with the world we are changing for them.

Life is changing. Now we can have a garden on our roof, but the wildlife and energy-transforming possibilities are really building up. I doubt if you’ll like some of our ideas here, but there may be some way you can imagine a green roof being of benefit and fitting in to your local landscape.

Have you ever wondered about modifying your home to make it less energy intensive? Or does the idea of building environmentally-friendly homes appeal to your government? Sustainable construction can be of anything you fancy in your property or possibly a new house on a piece of land you can acquire. You can easily make it more than a pipe-dream.
