i m at home, all the time! I work mostly at home! so calm down. i didnt mean to be smart ass and also didnt mean to make you angry, but i did, so i apolozise. I will be more careful with words.
now, i did read what you wrote and answered to points where i dont agree with. We are discusing and everyone has his or her own opinion. I was also trying to provide some information where i thought you didnt know about, judging from what you wrote.
the car thing and the buttom thing seem to have caused a huge problem here, so lets clean those up first.
car. I got my car in 2003 due to the need for work, i have to drive out far onto the countryside around beijing and rely on time. So taxi and there like wasnt relieable enough for my work. I dont fancy big cars, so i got a 1.4 Polo which does what i need perfectly.
Now the car is still in good shap but pretty old. I will have to face the need for a replacement very soon. And there is this tax policy for buying new cars. Last year, there was a zero-tax policy for cars under 1.6, this year they raised it to 5% or so, next
year they might raise it even more. So i would save some money when selling my old car and buying a new one within this year. That does seem to be that showing off, does it? I looked around, there isnt no proper solution for electro cars, also no way to charge
power that would make sense on daily basis. Alternatives like diesel isnt supported in China, so i m feeling bad that i will have to go for another fuel driven car again (maybe a golf 1.6 cuz the polo they build now is a lesser car compare to the version i
go and the drive efficience isnt as good as the new golf which wont cause much more emission then a 1.4 Polo). Do you see know what i m talking about now?
Button: I have been concerned about the madness that we human have been causing since my teenage days. And due to what i see and know, to make things short, i lost any hope that it can get any better, for short or long. (have a look on how many species die
out each day in the recent years, if you know what the butterfly effect means, i really dont know how one still can stay optimistic). I dont want to act smart. I m serious, this is a very serious situation. I feel bad that because i live and rely on everything
that provides me with comfortable living envirunment (i am not a rich guy and dont fancy any fancy stuff that are useless), i am causing all this madness together with everyone else. I have a small flat and dont over use energy in any kind. I even dont go
on trips if not nessesary (biz or edu). Anyway, i m sure i lead a very envirunment awaring life style. I do everything not to waste energy (re-use of print paper, re-using plastic bags, refusing plastic wrapping as much as i can, i have reuseable chopsticks
in my car in case the restaurent doesnt offer solid ones, and all what one can do as you say) but i m seriously thinking, this is by far and long not enough to solve the problem. Doing all this might make me feel slightly better, cause at least i m doing something.
But being realistic, this is like joke compared to what we human are doing! That's why the button thought! That is my point of view.
i really dont agree with a lot what you wrote but in this case, to save your energy, i better be quite. please dont tell me what to do or not to, that is somekind rude.
