A circular economy is one that is equitable - and for that reason sustainable. The "Circular Economy" is a United Nations objective and a European Commission target that is endorsed by most other nations around the world. The fact that we may be exiting Europe with Brexit high on the political agenda, does not diminish the duty we owe to protect the natural world from human waste.
Just as importantly, we need to provide affordable housing for future generations and aim towards a society where not so many people can exploit the system for personal gain. That is not to say that businesses should not make a profit. Profits are needed for forward investment, provided that they are not the fruit of immoral earnings. Here we are talking about financial slavery and the modern poverty trap created by the renting society we have created in the United Kingdom.
We hope to show politicians that clean energy and high quality pre-fabricated housing can help them to achieve their political ambitions. We are advocates of clean transport such as electric vehicles and we want to do what we can to help politicians understand the full import of plastic packaging as it affects our future energy and food security.
These are the important issues that we hope to bring into focus for the benefit of all the citizens of the United Kingdom so that they may continue to enjoy life as much as we would like to enjoy the un-scorched British countryside.
BOOMTOWN RATS - In Sussex, Wealden District Council are allowing hundreds of luxury houses to be built without any climate offset features. There are no charging points for EVs, no solar water heaters and no solar panels where all councils in the UK are aware that climate mitigation is a requirement. The councillors and officers responsible for encouraging these builds are proud of their achievement, where they should hang their heads in shame. These units represent carbon emissions that in turn mean the deaths of millions of animals all over the world. This picture was taken in March of 2019
HOT AIR? - Grit your teeth all you can, but it is your policies that have caused this mess. Politicians say what they think the electorate want to hear, but in reality, there is usually an alternative agenda. Margaret Thatcher is to blame for the current lack of affordable housing in the UK where she allowed council housing sell off without replacement. This was typical short sightedness on the part of the Conservatives who are famous for quick fixes. In 2019 the Climate Change Act 2008 was amended to reduce greenhouse gas emission to 100% less than 1990 levels. Well done Prime Minister.
MELT DOWN - Human activities are releasing nearly 10 Gegatons of Carbon (about 36 Billion tons of CO2) into the atmosphere every year, driving atmospheric CO2 concentrations to 400 parts per million (ppm) from their pre-industrial levels of 280 ppm. This increase in CO2 and other greenhouse gases concentrations traps additional energy in the earth's climate system.
