Today I got a message noting the guardians coverage of a nice story
World’s coral reefs could disintegrate by 2100
Researchers at Carnegie Institution say corals are being overwhelmed by rising carbon dioxide in the atmosphere
I read the piece. And a fine written article it is if I may say so. I was impressed. That was until I saw their ads for their online shopping parked right beside it…..
Yes that’s right…. you can read about the CO2 destruction of the coral reefs whilst drinking your coffee from a mug that has been posted and delivered to you from the UK…. ? Aparently….
It reveals the worlds most severe carbon footprint offenders
Erm…………? What’s the word I’m looking for……?
I live in Ballyboughal. So it’s plane to Dublin Airport. Then to the sorting office…somewhere…. then to Balbriggan and then to my house…… ?
I’ve spoke about green ethics here before… but this one simply stinks of anything that’ll make a few bob being very honest…. that is unless the guardian are going to have an organic corn fed carrier pidgeon deliver this mug right to my door….. ?
Wouldn’t it be nice if the Guardian Eco section simply had a sign there saying buy local as possible…. ?
