When I was fourteen years old, in 1983, I went on a school field trip to find out about new energy technology. We went to a facility where they exhibited the utilization of wind energy, solar energy, water energy by new modern technology. Imagine, this was the mid-eighties and that technology was ALREADY available.
I can remember distinctively thinking: ‘’But why, if this technology is here, why aren’t we using it on a grand scale? Why are we still using and abusing the Earth in a destructive way until there is nothing left and life will be extinct?’’
Today, over 30 years later, the world is burning. It is that time that I was dreading as a fourteen-year-old. I know now why change hasn’t come as soon as it could have. It is corporate greed and public complacency.
We need to make a choice NOW. To perish, or to implement new technology and change our behaviour. To stop wasting the earth and ultimately, our lives. To save our beautiful planet and OURSELVES. Will you help?
