We the all consuming, are bombarded with the relentless shpiel of global warming and its destructive effect on our fair land.... Green house gasses, fossil fuels, Kyoto, glaciers, aerosols - Blah Blah Blah. Yet the folks behind the statistics, models and computer generated simulations fail to agree on whether or not the increase in temperatures (Eh - A degree or two would be much appreciated to us porcelain northerners) are the repercussions for our menacing ways... tut tut tut. With good intentions (no guilt involved... Pfff!) I try and be that bit more of an Eco friendly type of guy and yet I fail miserably, lights are left on to scare away ghostly figures (Yup - Im still afraid of the dark) and should I be vilified for wanting my fruit to be as snug as a bug in infinite amounts of unnecessary packaging (there's nothing more disappointing that a bruised peach - right?). Guilty? without question - how do I sleep at night? Easy, My theory that the brains behind the polls and the stats are tied to the existence of a problem for no other reason than that of monetary means - Ignorant , I agree.
Due to grave peer pressure, I do plan to decrease my carbon footprint by peddling from A to B and there is no finer way to do so than to invest in a paint by number bicycle brought to us by the team at JellyBean bikes. Inspired by their Australian counterpart Marc Newson, the colour crazed team enables its band of merry followers to decide on the colour of the varying parts... There's one condition, colours of the primary kind or not an option, instead choose from very cherry to plum. Delicious.
