I'll explain that in a second, but first, today is Blog Action Day. I've already written a long and detailed post about the possible effects of design on the environment on my business blog, check it out!
Whilst I'm here, I thought I'd take a completely different tact, and mention an interesting video I came across recently regarding global warming. Now I warn you, the video is 9 minutes long, but I highly recommend it, and it will go a long way to explaining my first sentence here. He's looking at this from a different perspective, one which I feel is totally valid.
I've had some discussion with people about this video, and whenever it comes back to scientific debate as to the validity of global warming, whether or not it is happening, and whether or not the human race is affecting it, I have found myself thinking that no matter what way you look at it, environmental disasters are happening – every year there's a spate of news stories about mud slides, floods, earthquakes, and various other extreme natural and weather based catastrophes. Are we prepared for them? Probably not…
Spread the word. Keep this issue active and in the forefront of people's minds. Oh, and don't forget, when you leave the room, remember to turn off the light. Regardless of whether you're saving the environment or not, you're definitely saving your pocket 😉
