FROG SYNDROME & GLOBAL WARMING
THEY'RE CATCHING ON - As we've been saying for years, those in trusted positions have become blinded by what they've been doing in the past, for so long, it is difficult for them to change, let alone appreciate that by doing nothing, the harm they are causing. That is of course how we've reached this crisis point. Children in schools see things more in black and white. They are prepared to compromise their education in order to save our elders from the dangerous climate change course they are on.
Blinded by profits and the need for economic growth, those in trusted positions have been cannot understand that constant growth will lead to a burnt out planet. It does not help when planning officers tell councillors that they cannot challenge their legal department and that they must build more brick houses to fill the housing shortage. What the officers should be saying is that we need timber buildings to lock up carbon, and that they should be affordable. Town planners and other chiefs at Wealden are some of the embedded climate criminals that must be ousted.
On November 30, over 15,000 boys and girls went on strike from school in every capital city and over 20 regional centres across Australia. On March 15, they are going even bigger and inviting adults to join them in solidarity for a Global Climate Strike! We ask, should that not include every country in the world?
As the famous experiment shows us, the normal reaction to something that will kill you, is dulled so much by gradual change that the subject will fail to react in time, or at all, and die. It is much the same with politicians, the gradual rise in the earth's temperature (melting of ice, etc) will pass them by all the while they are profiting from the system that got them elected and there are no shouts of complaint.
The only way to get politicians elected who will take immediate action is to protest loudly and consistently, until such time as candidates will come forward who want to make the urgent changes that are needed, because the noise is so loud that politicians cannot stand it any longer..
BOILING FROG SYNDROME - This is why the politicians of today are unwilling to act to save their children and the planet. They are climate fools in not adjusting to changing circumstances until it (potentially) kills us all. Are we about to let that happen?
BOILING WATER EXPERIMENTS AND ANALYSIS
As part of advancing science, several experiments observing the reaction of frogs to slowly heated water took place in the 19th century. In 1869, while doing experiments searching for the location of the soul, German physiologist Friedrich Goltz demonstrated that a frog that has had its brain removed will remain in slowly heated water, but an intact frog attempted to escape the water when it reached 25 °C.
Councils are bound by the tenets of the Climate Change Act 2008 to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to 1990 levels. Our Government has given all local authorities until 2050 to achieve that goal. The Climate Change and Sustainable Energy Act 2006 was the earlier legislation that instructed councils to encourage micro-generation. But so far Wealden (our target example) have carried on building more of the same houses that got us into this mess.
What we need in an immediate block on the building of houses that do not incorporate energy harvesting features and charging points for electric cars.
G20 GLOBAL TWENTY COUNTRIES IN 2019 - ARE THEY AIMING TO TACKLE GLOBAL WARMING, OR IS IT MORE HOT AIR? THESE LEADERS ARE PART OF THE PROBLEM, WE NEED ACTION NOW, NOT ELECTION PROMISES
ALL HANDS TO THE PUMPS - When it comes to climate change we all have to do our bit to halt global warming if we can. If we leave it to our local authorities we'll end up in bigger trouble. Why? Because they did not see it coming and they are still allowing the build of mansions that use heaps of energy that we cannot afford to burn. Councils suffer from Frog Syndrome, they will sit in the water that is being boiled until they die, taking down (potentially killing) their children and many other species on earth in the process. Fools yes, but more like homicidal maniacs in climate change terms.
Wealden are no different to Trump and Putin. This council is allowing large numbers of houses to be built locally, without any climate change features, and not an electric vehicle charging point in sight. In our view that makes Wealden's councillors and their executive officers guilty of global warming denial. They are guilty of a lot more than that, as supposed town planners they have failed to act in anticipation of the need for affordable and sustainable housing. That is why we have a housing shortage. Moreover, local MPs appear to be living in ignorance of such matters when they are supposed to provide Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth with an effective administration. Wouldn't it be nice if the world is working together before her 100th birthday in 2026. What a present that would be for the head of the Commonwealth.
COP 1, BERLIN, GERMANY
WEALDEN DISTRICT COUNCIL - We can only report on what is happening local to us. You will need to see if your local authority are acting for the common good, or if they are doing the same as our climate dimwits in Sussex. This is as of January 2019. We hope that by 2020 we can say that our climate fools have either been on a climate awareness course, or that planning-speeding has been outlawed - preferably by statute. Because we all know that if there is a loophole or any gray area at all, this council will use it to make another fast buck.
TREES, OXYGEN & CARBON DIOXIDE
Have you ever wondered just how much
oxygen one tree makes?
Well, one acre of trees annually consumes the amount of carbon dioxide equivalent to that produced by driving an average car for 26,000 miles.
On average, one tree produces nearly 260 pounds of oxygen each year. Two mature trees can provide enough oxygen for a family of
four according to Environment Canada, Canada's national environmental agency.
