It’s Not Easy Being Green, But It’s Not Hard To Be Sensible

20 07 2011

Wouldn’t it be great if all we had to do to be environmentally-friendly was to drive a Toyota Prius and to put up some solar panels on our roofs?

Yes, that would be great.

But the sad truth is that it’s not that easy.

What is also sad is that if something is difficult to fix, then we would rather wish it away or let someone like David Suzuki solve it for us.

Another sad truth is that there are creatures out there that can’t drive a car or put up solar panels.  I’m talking about the creatures out there whose habitats are at the mercy of us humans.

We have the technology.  We have the capability.

We are not saying we don’t want the gas.  We are saying that we don’t want the gas processed at the culturally significant, ecologically sensitive James Price Point.

Shell is soon building the world’s largest floating LNG plant out in the Browse Basin.  Woodside is soon to start its own floating LNG plant at the Sunrise field near Timor-Leste.

So, we have the technology.  We have the capability.  So let’s now use some commonsense shall we, Woodside?
