A comfy chair in front of a warm fire. Staring in to the roaring flames and thinking about distant, beloved memories. Stories you heard when you were a child. Things your grandfather used to say while he smoked a pipe and talked about the good-old days–Now, seriously, who doesn’t like the sound of this?
Let’s face it, people, we used fossil fuels because that was what came naturally to us; it just seemed like a very good idea at the time. Someone else who has something to say on this matter speaks out at the following link.
I think it’s time to stop saying “why did we do that?” We shouldn’t keep blaming ourselves for using fossil fuels–because well, what exactly is the point? It doesn’t get us anywhere, does it? We just go round and round in circles. Now, if we could all put as much energy in to working out what our future sources of power are going to be, wouldn’t that be something?
I enjoyed reading the aforementioned article for several reasons: firstly, I found myself thinking about things from other people’s points of view. I found myself thinking about what would happen if I had a large family. How would I save energy? And that, in turn, got me thinking about other things: like how having a big family would be different from my life now. What with all the things that it would entail, how would I possibly find time to think about saving energy?
That’s the beauty of blogs like this: they give you a different perspective. This is something we all need, in order to see the bigger picture.
