Monday Moaning

It may well be New Years Eve (at least here in Brazil) but I have been watching videos and looking at photos from around the world.

Just because it’s New Year, doesn’t mean I can’t have a Moan!

Here is an example, New Year’s fireworks display from Copacabana Beach last year. Sixteen minutes of fireworks (the clip is just 1:22).


Did you watch until the end? Did you see the amount of pollution that was pumped into the atmosphere, all that carbon?

Here we are in the midst of critical irreversible climate changes and we still do this…

Imagine the collective carbon and pollution from celebrations all around the world.

We aren’t serious about wanting to survive, are we?

“But it’s New Year!” goes up the collective shout.

What’s to celebrate if there are no people around?

    Well said. There are better ways to celebrate the year with environmentally sound alternatives. Animals suffer due to fireworks too.



  2. I will never be able to look at fireworks the same way. Locally we no longer have a large fireworks show because of economic constraints on the town, but a few families still set some off. It’s the same as everything else, no one wants to give up anything for the planet, do they?
