Did you know that you say the word ‘Gullible’ backwards, it sounds like; environmentally friendly or sustainable economic growth?

 

No, your not saying it slow enough.

 

Oh, look it up!

 

 

Green-wash

 

    Green wash:-Disinformation disseminated by an organization, business or government so as to present an environmentally responsible image.

 

The following is a standard draft you will read on any government paper on the subject of climate change, it has been adopted and used as a template thousands of times. It might as well replace the page number for all the good it does (personally, I find the page number more intelligent as at least there is a logic to it!)…

 

    “There are two main policy responses to climate change: mitigation and adaptation. Mitigation addresses the root causes, by reducing greenhouse gas emissions, while adaptation seeks to lower the risks posed by the consequences of climatic changes. Both approaches will be necessary, because even if emissions are dramatically decreased in the next decade, adaptation will still be needed to deal with the global changes that have already been set in motion”

 

    Well, that sounds as though we are in safe hands and all is being sorted by our government of the day. But hang on a minute! Do I get a sense of déjà vu, a feeling of political spin, subconsciously being planted in my mind by repetitive meaningless phrases, jargon and claptrap?

This is typically something written from a school book study on climate change and what to do (on paper) either to please the teacher or pass an exam, it could be the stuff of comic book fantasy apart from the rest of the stories in the comic being more accurate. What gibberish and utter banal nonsense!

    In the first place we are never going to reduce any C02 emissions, in the second place ‘adaption’ (a green-wash word) is based on a ludicrous concept that a few pesky heat waves and a couple of nuisance heavy showers will eventually give way to May flowers if we play our cards right!

    Remember: All ‘Green’ charities, as all ‘Green’ promoters of their products are on the ‘Green’ gravy train looking for very green people to make money from. And as of all charities and corporations, the newfound and politically expedient claims of sustainability are not models of real responsibility. We would be green ourselves to believe so! In my opinion (which counts for zilch) they are there just to sustain income for themselves.

    These scant examples are here to show you how even the biggest, respected businesses are caught in the green wash tub. When you next see a ‘Green’ logo, please think; think very hard before you part with your money. If a very, very large government organisation charged with protecting the environment, uses the same analogy (the carrier bag) as their weapon of choice for saving the planet, just shows their limited capability of taking the holistic view about climate change and global warming and saving the human race from extinction.

The only thing that is truly 'green' is...You!
