I hope that everyone has had a reasonably good start to their summer. As you know, I have been bogged down with admin for my full time job and my blogging has taken a back seat. This is something I never wanted to happen but ultimately I only have so much energy.
As we are going through an enormous rise in fuel prices, caused partly by a war and partly due to some rich companies being extra greedy, it feels like the right time to change our attitude to cleaner energy solutions.
Yet in the USA some of the pollution capping previously outlined has been overturned. The Supreme Court limited the Environmental Protection Agency’s ability to control emissions of pollutants, going forward.
Is it me or is the Supreme Court (9 individuals) becoming a bit big for its boots?
This is not the only stupid decision that this ridiculously powerful collective made recently (see Roe v Wade reversal).
Anyway, the overpowering facts about climate change still seem to rattle very few political cages and people are still making purely economic choices instead of climate- friendly ones.
With energy price hikes, the economic instinct should be moving towards non-fossil fuels and sustainable provision of electricity. We just need to make those greedy politicians wake up to the fact that there is more to life than golden handshakes and parties.
