Instead of waiting for the government to “do something” about the environment, there is much that we as responsible citizens can do right here and now.
The true driving force that shapes any civilisation is the grass roots – the citizenry. It is we who by our conduct, our creativity in all areas of life, by our agreements and values, by the demand we express or neglect to express in life’s market place and by what we are willing to “put up with” or take responsibility for, who make our civilisation.
In other words, we do not need to tear apart our civilisation, start a revolution or sacrifice the standard of living generations of good people have worked hard to build in order to “save the planet”. We can simply assist and encourage the continued evolution of our existing and already highly accomplished civilisation in the direction of greater and greater rationality and survival.
With that in mind,we can help the burgeoning clean-energy industry by simply deciding to use green energy suppliers.
Many people are already doing so and if many more joined us, that demand alone would push forward and accelerate the drive for clean energy. With the UK already now using more that 50% clean energy, we the citizenry, through the normal marketplace mechanism of supply and demand, can play our part in pushing this to 100%.
To cite an example, one such electricity supplier is Bulb [for our American friends, click Bulb.com] Bulb uses 100% renewable energy sources. Having switched to Bulb BECAUSE it supplies electricity from clean/renewable sources, my wife and I have found their prices and their service and general communication-level with their customers to be better than the less green suppliers. In other words, switching to clean energy required NO sacrifice on our part. (In fact, we wound up with a better deal].
They are not the only clean energy supplier in the UK so if you have not already switched, please check this out because making the switch is something you easily CAN do to help the planet.
The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
