I consumed the subsequent news articles and regurgitated the information to anyone who would listen. I became an admirer of the Denmark politicians for implementing progressive plans to combat the non-renewable resources issue.
Last month when Germany recently announced that it aimed to generate 80% of its electricity through renewable resources, I did more clapping for joy. The German government were also getting serious about sustainability.
A week ago, France joined other nations such as Brazil and South Africa in advocating corporate sustainability reporting and making it standard practice. Some of my French friends were joyously sharing this news on Facebook. I carried on clapping for joy.
Governments the world over are playing crucial roles in promoting sustainable practices. I see it first hand in Australia. Due to the governments’ climate change policies, more households are opting for solar panels, for energy efficient shower heads and light globes and rain water tanks are aking appearance in urban backyards. Australians are starting to listen.
But there is still a long way to go in convincing not just the Australian government to commit to a 100% renewable energy target, but some minority Australians too (you know who you are). If you’re in this category, perhaps if you continue to read my blog, you may just start to see the world as round and not flat
Should the day come when Australia announces it will be fully committed to generating most of its energy through renewable sources, I will not only clap for joy, I will be jumping as well!
