It is interesting how people unable to connect the dots and see the bigger picture. Everyone thinks that if we have clean energy from solar or wind then we are saved and global warming will be reversed. They think that the key to reduce dependence on oil is to build nuclear power plants.
Oh, p-l-e-a-s-e- we can’t even control an oil leak in the ocean. How are we going to deal with nuclear waste?
Well, how about REDUCING consumption? Do you really think that nuclear power, solar and wind power will solve the problem? It won’t! The problem will be the same – over consumption – only the source will be different.
Dah…people! stop sitting on your brain – if you got one then use it!
Very few Canadian knows that for example BC is planning to export resources to China. Well China is an energy hungry country. And by good old dumb way of thinking – they think in oil. They don’t think in reduction of consumption, or use clean power source – like solar cells or wind. This would be an excellent time to think about it and how they could meet their energy needs in a better way than other countries currently do.
But, Canadian oil and mine companies are greedy and they want the profit and therefore they are ready to sell the country. Let’s export wood, oil and other resources to energy hungry China.
The problem I see is not the export but the mismanagement of resources. It is very prevalent in our forests. This year – in 2010- the government is cutting back and 40% less trees are planted back to the soil.
Since 2001 there has been reduction of personnel overseeing the forestry, overseeing inventory and just generally examining the current health of the BC forests. Greed and greed what is currently characterizes the Ministry of Forestry.
So what do you do? Start educating yourself and keep an eye on what is happening in the province.
Do you want to leave this to your children or… ?
