0帮助环境

我一直打算开始写了,而一些“政治”的文章, 我想我会分享一些想法是好的为您的环境,往往对你的健康和你的钱包太少的变化可以使启动. 我住的地方在英格兰,我们只有 2 政府真正的选择: 是相信个人自由和资本主义在一个几乎完全不受限制意义上的政党, 这必然会引起显著贫富差距; 并认为在某些政策不同程度的重新分配财富和公平社会也是一个政党似乎找到了自己想要过接触和人民的地区干涉住,政府不需要也不应该染指. 有时它是真的很难找到一个平衡点, 但很多时候双方都错过易胜. 我的建议是对于那些形形色色的“易胜”和而不是所有的人都适合每个人, 我希望每个人都可以找到一些有用的东西

在家庭能源效率

If you can use less energy you help the envir­on­ment and save money. Often these tips require an ini­tial invest­ment, but they do pay for them­selves quickly

切换到抵消天然气和可再生能源发电

You can change your energy sup­pli­er to one that is “green” by gen­er­at­ing elec­tri­city with renew­ables and provid­ing car­bon-off­set gas. There are sev­er­al green sup­pli­ers and they are often cheap­er than the big 6. It is not unusu­al for them to be amongst the cheapest energy sup­plies and switch­ing is easy. I recom­mend using Money Sav­ing Expert’s Cheap Energy Club.

Finally — some lazy “false tips” to beware of

步行, 不开车

Whilst this is reas­on­able for short dis­tances, most of us don’t live with­ing work­ing dis­tance of work. 我主要是开车上班, 和去商店. Whilst there is a mini super­mar­ket nearby it is much more expens­ive than the lar­ger stores, 即使是大, I wouldn’t be able to carry a months worth of shop­ping home by hand. We need to be able to stop harm­ing the envir­on­ment without telling people they have to lower their qual­ity of life

少吃肉类和乳制品

动物产品和植物产品之间的比较通常是由人的议程夸张. 虽然像对等的蔬菜产品比动物产品更低碳, 有很多更给它. 在英国出售的大部分肉在全球范围内相对本地, whilst many veg products come with a large dose of “air miles”. 肉类爱好者更好的建议是要少吃红肉,并有更多白肉代替. 这种互换也为更好的卫生.

不要每天沐浴 (和其他OTT节水窍门)

This is ter­rible advice, giv­en by people who have for­got­ten just how much mod­ern hygiene has con­trib­uted to bet­ter health. It is good to con­serve water where pos­sible, 但今天地球上没有水少比有 4 bil­lion years ago. We’re not “run­ning out of” water. Sup­ply­ing clean water does take a lot of energy, which is the main envir­on­ment­al jus­ti­fic­a­tion for try­ing to use it sens­ibly. 我们不告诉人们热家园 12 度在冬季节约能源, because we recog­nise doing so would be det­ri­ment­al to health. We ought to apply the same reasoned approach to water con­ser­va­tion.

干衣服上的晾衣架

A dry­ing rack will evap­or­ate the water into your home. 这将导致受潮, which has the poten­tial to encour­age fungal spores which cause health issues. It could also even­tu­ally cause dam­age to your home which will require energy and mater­i­als to repair. The feel­ing of damp also tends to make us feel cold with the nat­ur­al response being to turn the ther­mo­stat up a notch. You could open a win­dow, but then you’re just pump­ing your heated air in the house out of the win­dow! When the weath­er is suit­able then the use of an out­door dry­ing rack is good advice, but in winter the use of a mod­ern con­dens­ing tumble-dry­er is a bet­ter choice than a clothes horse inside.
