10 minutes a day to save the planet, that's the utopy

I’m sure that I lot of people think of me as a dreamer and somewhat deconnected being. I often ranted about the environment and the challenges that we’ll have to face, which compared to the ones of today are immense, and sometimes came up with a simplistic vision of victory.

In the end I don’t think that I’m that shallow. I surely know that we have a lot of common work to do to make things better. That’s just another reason to call me a utopist.

That’s probably why I like John Lennon’s song so much.

Anyway I was reading recently that a lot of books recently published were carrying the message that we could save the world by using 10 minutes a day working on it. The perfect recycler, driving the most fuel hungry SUV can then feel good about their efforts. Good for you.

It’s not that simple, we need laws to protect humanity. Like the laws that protect our poor lungs against second hand smoke. It took a huge consensus to have these laws approved… and a few very important law suits wins.

Only stong, people oriented, governments are gonna change things, forget the Bush’s and the Harper’s of this world.

That doesn’t mean that our best efforts shall diminish, not at all. We just need to ask more from our electeds.
