Yeah, if I’m working from home I’ll wear jumpers unless I can feel it in my feet or hands, usually an hour boost is enough to keep me good until the rest of the family come home. A hot water bottle works too.The heating only goes on when the office is so cold my hands start to feel it, otherwise I layer up.
I meant to answer you properly the other day but I was doing stupid work. I've been harbouring a theory that best way to deal with door to door politicians is literally present them with a contract.How feasible do you think something like this would be - use facebook ads to gather large groups of voters concerned about climate in constituency and try and force political change by using those peoples' votes. Approach election candidates and say "if you include this shit on your platform then X people in your constituency will give you their number 1"
How does taxing people for using creating more Carbon make any sense without offering an alternative fuel solution?Carbon tax solution essential to meeting emissions goals
a great mixture of racism, capitalist realism, and people who only want to talk about their own pet theories in the comments.
Ugh, I have thoroughly depressed myself.
Not sure I follow, does the article posted not make the same argument as you, more or less? It's calling for retrofitting the whole country and not making a carbon tax the "defining feature" of any plan.How does taxing people for using creating more Carbon make any sense without offering an alternative fuel solution?
Seems like It’s yet another money grab from Fine Gael.
Why the hell isnt there any incentive to retrofit cars with an Electric motor and batteries?
Develop basic kits and have state-wide installation / service garages and start converting all the buses and governmental vehicles and roll out 500% more charging points
Well he sounds mad. Can’t wait for the big reveal anyway.I'm fascinated with this GeraldKelleher lad in the comments who seems to think that all our problems can be traced back to Newton being wrong:
It does mean revisiting where aspirations of a clockwork solar system got ahead of the stable and noble environment of astronomical method and insights
I have no idea what he's talking about but he's clearly building up to some big reveal.
Yeah it is risky. it’s also a shame Fine Gael don’t really give a flying fuck about anything other than The EconomyThe thing Eamon Ryan can't say is that we should basically have big lads with sticks beating people out of their cars starting last week if we are to pass anything of value on to our kids. Everything has to phrased in some language that is pervaded by a middle class lifestyle. He's hinting at 'changes' but not in any way that will disrupt a performative green vote. This is still probably 1000x what the last two environment ministers have done, and its politically risky.
This kind really needs to turn into the new repeal/marriage eq if we have any hope at all.
