Why the world should save petrol
The world tells you there is no petrol left, the world tells you the air is polluted and the world begs you to change what you are doing. Why does no one act?
Why should we? We open our door, the air is fresh, we get in our car and drive 300 meters and get premium unleaded petrol. The world lies to you; there is no hurry, no urgency.
If someone tells you to move house because it is full of ants, but you have never encountered an ant in your lifetime, would you move? no.
Humans don't respond to global issues, we naturally find the red wine stain on the carpet far more agonizing than starving children and raging bush fires. We are ingrown; simply put, yet when provoked we can do great things.
If you tell a man that it will cost 4.5 billion dollars a year to prevent aids, he wont bat an eyelid; if you tell a man for $14 a year he can save a young boy without a father from aids, he takes interest, you tell a man for $14 a year he can prevent his own family from getting aids, his wallet will be open in seconds.
In order to provoke action in humans we must pay attention to the effects to their surrounding family and community.
Fuel consumption is increasing at an incredible rate; I could begin to delve into irrelevant facts about the global fossil fuel industry but that would undercut the purpose of this article.
What happens to you, the consumer? As demand for petrol increases, price increases, as price increases, you work harder and longer to get from A to B via C. The harder we must work to survive the greater our energy needs are, we have less money and less energy. We are stressed.
I was told recently that a recent survey of European nations said that 72% of consumers experiencing high levels of stress eat almost twice as much chicken as consumers with little or no stress in their lives. This is because chicken is a fast and reliable 'fall back food', if you are under pressure and someone asks you what are we having for dinner, you wont say satay pork, won tons or bacon and riccota quiche; you say chicken.
Irrelevant? Chickens are female. They contain large quantities of estrogen. More stress, less money, less energy and more and more feminine everyday.
These are the results of less crude oil in the earth. Don't bother with air quality or completely running out. If we run out everyone runs out; humans have a bizzare theory that as long as every one is in the same boat it doesn't matter whats going on.
You want to know more, you want to expand beyond the stereotypical theories that fail to stimulate your interest.
Be enlightened and become more efficient.
