CARBON FOOTPRINT

WHEN WILL WE REALLY START REDUCING OUR CARBON ?
Frankly, nobody seems to be taking us seriously
They are all putting us on the back-burner
What we now need is to put on some speed
LET US ASK WHY IT IS NOT HAPPENING FASTER?
Is it a management problem?
Is it a leadership problem ?
“WHAT IS EVERYBODY’S BUSINESS, IS NOBODY’S BUSINESS”
IS IT A TECHNICAL PROBLEM?
“HOW CAN WE REDUCE WHAT WE CANNOT SEE , FEEL
OR MEASURE?”
“WE DO NOT KNOW ENOUGH ABOUT IT”
IS IT A MONEY PROBLEM?
“WE WILL REDUCE CARBON
ONLY IF WE GET PAID FOR IT”
WE DO NOT HAVE THE POLITICAL WILL
