Early Days of a Better Nation

With Boris Johnson PM facing a vote of no confidence, the United Kingdom might move back toward decency and progress; which inspires flickers of joy. However, the decision lies in the hands of Conservative MPs rather than the nation; which inspires flickers of powerlessness. Fortunately—while the greatest power to make a better world lies in the hands of government and business—there are things individuals can do that make things better. So, to light the metaphorical candle, I decided to share a few pages from a Greenpeace list of potential lifestyle tweaks.

  1. Hmm, I’m kinda looking forward to full blown global warming. Bring on the meter sea rise. Let’s help push the Thwaites Glacier into the ocean. I want to see what’s under Greenland’s glaciers. Earth will be here for eons — with or without us, and without us is more likely.
