It would seem then that most of us cannot call ourselves true environmentalists according to this new definition. Sorry Treehugger.....even you I'm afraid.
I'm not sure exactly what we are supposed to eat these days........I'm as guilty as the next person I imagine. I source everything I can locally ( less air miles ) but I can't possibly grow/rear everything I eat. One minute we are encouraged to support our dairy farmers, the next minute we are made to feel guilty by doing so.
Not only food but power generation in all it's forms too..........one minute Bio fuel is all the rage, next minute we are ripping up forests to grow the necessary and someone then says "Hang on.....we are using valuable food growing space ". I've noticed too that far less money and resources are spent on encouraging people to save power than to carry on generating more. I see the need to keep us all in heat and light but it seems to me that we are constantly urged to buy and use more gadgets that are incredibly power hungry.
Verdun.......I don't think it was a "politician" per se...........I think from some NGO (amounts to the same thing I suppose ). I have the feeling you cannot really differentiate between Politicians and Lobbyists.....other than to say the Lobbyists are usually more savvy
Sorry....rant over..........it just really T's me off.
Pompeyboy......enjoy your daffs and crocus........as you are so recently there it is always a good idea to wait and see what previous owners have planted. I hope you get some nice surprises
