Monday Moaning

Two moans this morning.

Nothing like firing both barrels at the same time.

First up, nasty secretive governments

Fracking campaigners criticise ‘censored’ report on house prices

Government urged to publish sections cut from study into impact of shale gas wells on local communities

Source: TheGuardian Read the article.

Opinion:

It’s high time that governments realised they are elected by the people to serve the needs of the people and not their own twisted agendas.

Governments have lost track of why they are there.

Ideally, they shouldn’t have secret agendas that they don’t want the people to know about; whether militarily or domestically.

The people have a right to know!

Not only know, but know the FULL story, not some censored shit that the government thinks will keep the people quiet.

Generally, it follows that if there’s shit that the government needs to censor, then there’s some shit that is not good nor for the benefit of the people.

Use your vote to get rid of these degenerates!

Second up:

There needs to be more effort in supporting businesses that look to caring for the environment.

“At the moment, one of my supermarkets is out of the paper option, and the girl at the checkout was packing my stuff. Sometimes she would put just two or three items in a bag, I complained bitterly, unpacking and repacking more items to reduce the number of bags. This girl had no idea.” Opening paragraph to a piece on my CTWW of 16th July. Read for the story, it’s further down the post.

Then this week I read a comment:

“I am shocked an employee of Trader Joe’s had no concept of the environmental issues surrounding plastic. Maybe the answer to educating the public is to include it as part of the job training as well. I don’t have a Trader Joe’s near me currently, but will if I relocate. I used to shop there in Arizona but today am concerned with some of their business decisions and may not return to give them my business.”  Comment on Living Simply Free

Opinion:

Companies, retailers, service suppliers, etc need to be taken to task.

Either you care about the environment or I take my business elsewhere!

This means that managers need to add environmental issues to their staff training, as an integral part of same.

That means that YOU need to complain to them. YOU need to make them aware of their shortcomings and deficiencies. If you claim to be green, and don’t, then YOU ARE PART OF THE PROBLEM!

In my case above, I complained, and I got a satisfactory response, the manager agreed with me, he hadn’t thought about the issue before, and promised to look into it. I will be watching!

If and when I see an improvement, I will talk to him again, however, if I don’t see some action I will talk to him again and tell him why he won’t see me in his store again.

Have you got the courage to do this?

  2. It is down to the individual consumer to drive change on environmental issues, otherwise the traders and government will remain in the inertia of old environmentally hostile paradigms.
