Herinneringe

Objekte van sentiment:
Ou foto’s, fliekkaartjies,
’n Verjaarsdag boek-persent.

Maak weg die ballas,
Smyt op die vuur,
Laat verbrand tot as.

Maar die herinnering
Op ’n laatnaguur
Wat hulle kon bring
Bly jou helaas gespaar
En word oplaas,
Saam met jou, opgebaar.

Ek dink nie so nie …

My flash drive het sopas die gees gegee.

Maar ek dink nie dat hierdie ‘n aanvaarbare vervanging is nie.

Maar as jy dapper genoeg is, kan jy dit by Loot bestel.

Which is Worse?

Climate Change or Climate Change Activists?

In my alotted three-score-and-10 plus some, I have not noticed the 0.5oC increase – the other +/- 0.5oC increase was before my time.

However, the activists do have a very significant effect on all of us:

  • Carbon tax.
  • Higher electricity charges.
  • Subsidies for all things green, i.e. electric vehicles, wind and solar installations, etc.
  • Higher food prices thanks to food crops used for biofuels.
  • Deforestation to cultivate crops to be used for biofuels.
  • Rare raptors, other birds and bats killed by wind turbines or incinerated by solar installations (The Ivanpah type concentrated solar system).
  • Traffic and other disruptions caused by mass protests.

I’m sure one could add many other effects.
