State of the Environment – finish your dinner

johnboy 7 August 2008 9

Chief Minister Stanhope has announced the release of the ACT State of the Environment Report 2007/08.

Apparently the biggest problem with our local environment is that you’re not finishing your dinner:

    “The report shows that the ACT’s most pressing environmental issue is our very high consumption of natural resources. Each of us spends an average $1475 each year on unused items such as food.”

So-called Key Findings are online but my eyes glazed over at Conserving Biodiversity point 3,a,iii.

Just compost your scraps, ie collect in a small lidded container until full then start a heap in a corner. So good for soaking up all that carbon. Or use a bokashi bucket if no room for a heap/bin.

a sobering reminder that we need to become smarter in our choices about food, clothing, transport and other purchases

Well, f*ck you Jon.

I, for one, will ignore your Stalinist decrees about how we should live our lives.

I, for one, assert my right to use more than three sheets of dunny paper.

I, for one, assert my right to dismiss someone who uses the word “sobering”.

And just you stop me, Jon.

You blowhard w*nker.

Now that food is getting so expensive, people may be a bit more careful to actually use all the vegies they’ve bought.

That woman is so political its scarey. Notice how she leaves our community leaders alone. Mayb ethey are “protected species”.

One wonders how the higher average incomes of the ACT go when compared to the rest of the country.

Bloody hell!

Ok, I confess I use more than the allotted dunny paper allowance.

It pains me, but I admit I use more than: “One up. One down. One for the polish.”

Arrest me now!

Think of the environment. (Guilty averted look)

Since my riot-act pin is supposedly on the way, JB can pass my address onto the relevant authorities.

Are Stanhope and the UK’s Gordon Brown employing the same Press Aides?
