  1. I feel that the population problem has been going on for such a long time and no one has addressed this because they feel that having children is our right as humans. I don't agree. I really feel that parents should have to take a test before they are allowed to have children. Why is it that I have to jump through hoops to drive a car, but I don't to have another human being. It's insane. Did anyone see that viral video about the young parents who put their kid in a washing machine? My point exactly.

    The problem is that the populations are concentrated in the cities, this could be overcome with a rationally planned economy.

    Did you know that the entire world population could fit into Texas with 1000 square feet of space per person?

  2. I think that Assange is talking shit about the real reasons for avoiding the Swedish justice system. He has shown repeatedly that he is a completely different man than the heroic freedom fighter he has pretended to be. Instead he's turned out to be a coward, and probably also a rapist.

    He does look rather strange and sinister in the photo you posted. However, WikiLeaks has exposed many dark secrets and I've always thought the people involved with WikiLeaks are under serious threat because of this.

    What are his reasons for avoiding the Justice System?

  3. Id like to know too. Anything to take the vinegar edge off cleaning. I dont like my house smelling like a pickle for an hour after cleaning.

    Don't use pure vinegar, that will make your house stink! Use a solution of water and vinegar. I use 4 parts water to 1 part vinegar. I fill a spray bottle with the water/vinegar solution and spray it. The smell is not as prominent when the vinegar is diluted and it still cleans effectively.

  4. @Esperahol I know China is one of the overpopulated country and also among top polluted country due its coal mine and lots other stuffs.But china also is an developed country.And I am not against euro/usa countries I am just focusing on my country and how it is affected by world developed countries so called development by big industries and smokes.

    Yes,it will and nobody is gonna listen.Just the world has to move.China/Russia should develop fast as communists to compete with america and uk.And we will suffer in this rush of development.

    China and Russia are not communist countries, they are both capitalist countries with bureaucratic/authoritarian governments. The means of production is private controlled in China. People seem to think the rate of growth in China will continue to rise or at least remain constant for decades, they are in for a big shock.

    You are right, though, growth in countries like Brazil and India will inevitably result in increased CO2 omissions. It is an orgy of profits, to hell with the health of our planet.

  5. We have plenty of rain here in England. utilizing the rainwater is a great way to conserve water and also reduce your bill. We have two big rainwater storage facilities. Incidentally, my girlfriend is Australian and her family own a water storage container business. They are popular in parts of Australia because of the droughts.

  6. I don't often tend to buy eco friendly clothes but always try and go for a vegan option where possible. I'm not sure if this counts as well? Converse are quite a good choice because it doesn't hurt any animals in the making. I guess the rubber soles are a bit of an issue when it comes to recycling though. I would be interested to see some more links to environmentally friendly clothing if anybody else has any great recommendations?

    There are plenty of stores online. Look up eco-friendly clothing or organic clothing. I think the eco-fashion industry will grow in the coming years. I have been buying eco-friendly clothing for around 5 years now and there are more outlets than ever before.

  7. Green roofs are cool. We have lots of rooftop gardens in London. It's good for nature - the bees love it and I think most people enjoy having a sanctuary of nature n their concrete cities. It's also a very good way of utilizing space for growing vegetables etc. I'm all for it.

  8. I have started cooking outside more because we had to chop down a big cherry tree and we have been using the wood to cook outside. The firewood has lasted us for 2 years and we still have a quarter of it left. We try to preserve energy, if we use the oven we utilize it for multiple meals, not just one meal.

  9. I am on every do not mail list. I rarely get unsolocited mail anymore except from Geico. They would be a very rich company if they didnt mail me 2 of the same letter 3 times a week.

    We have a 'No advertising leaflets or free newspapers' sign on a door but we still receive unwanted post, albeit much less than before. Posting leaflets is relatively cheap advertising for businesses, that's why they do it. Most of the junk mail I receive is from Indian restaurants, they don't have the money to pay for TV commercials so they post junk instead.

  10. Until consumers stop demanding the products these companies make it is unlikely we will see change. It is crazy to think that there are not greener, cleaner ways to go about our manufacturing.

    The companies are not majorly concerned about the cost to the environment. If polluting the environment is profitable they will continue to do it. The profit motive is in direct conflict with living sustainably. Consumers do not have much choice, they buy what they can afford.

  11. I smoked for 5 years from 16 to 21. I smoked 5 roll ups per day and 1 roll up equals half a cigarette, so I wasn't smoking many compared to most smokers. I went cold turkey and I found it quite easy after the first week. I suppose it would be different for someone who smokes more per day and gradually lowering the number you smoke might be a sensible route. How many do you smoke?

  12. The biggest and easiest change my family made was reducing our water usage. We put in a new toilet, new shower head and sink faucet and our bill has gone down so much. During the summer we take "military style" showers and turn off the water when we are shaving or just lathering up. The kids love it and my wallet loves it!

    We had a new water-saving shower and toilet fitted a few months. It was quite expensive but I'm hoping this will be offset by the money saved on bills. How much money do you save a year?

    We also have a rainwater storage facility for washing clothes etc.

  13. Haha, her name is rather ironic. SUV owners anger me. There are so many women driving SUV's in my area, all they do is drive to pick up their children from school, they don't need such a big vehicle.

    I'm glad she was fined, that should make her think twice about throwing rubbish out the window.

  14. I make my own deodorant, shampoo and toothpaste using baking soda and a few other ingredients like essential oils (for deodorant).

    I use vinegar to clean, I try to restrict the use of toxic chemicals for cleaning. The only artificial cleaning products I use are for my clothes and I want to change that.

    I also grow my own food and I store rainwater for household use.

  15. There is a lot of controversy surrounding GM0 food. The defenders claim it is safe for human consumption and those against GMO claim it is dangerous to health. A study in China showed ingested miRNA (plays a role in various diseases) survives digestion and disrupts cell function.

    Personally, i wouldn't eat GMO.

  16. Haha, I'm sure I remember watching a nature documentary which mentioned this strange phenomenon. Does the coffee really taste like ass? Coffee that tastes like ass is not something I would want to drink. Why do they spend so much money on something that tastes like ass?

  17. Money is green regardless of it origin. To suggest corporate money taints a study is rather short sited. Just as short sited as suggesting government money guarantees a good study. Or any other source of funds for that matter. I prefer to look at methodolgy. But that doesn’t guarantee quality of outcome in the final product either. Track record of past conclusions of that scientist is considered as well.

    Let me repeat my question from post number 30.

    CO2vsUSHCN.gif

    Here is the study source I was referring to. Clearly this study indicates mean temperatures fell from 1940 to 1980. This study clearly indicated CO2 was steadly rising in our atmosphere. How is it possible temperatures fell during that time if CO2 is the cause of global warming?

    i don't think it is short-sighted. The source of funding is relevant. Science does not exist in a vacuum outside capitalism. Capitalists with specific economic interests fund experiments which will suit these interests, I don't think that is up for debate. As for the government, they are puppets for the capitalists.

    There might be other variables causing the drop in the mid 40's and early 60's, our planet is complex, it is not a linear process, even though temperature has risen linearly with co2 in the past 40 years.
