There is no ‘try’, just “do . . . or do not”

Yoda was right when he said to Luke Skywalker, ‘do . . . or do not’.

The same goes for me, anyone wishing to be ‘sustainable’, and all of us seeking to sustain our lovely Earth.

I’ve written about this in my column, Bathurst Burr, for The Fifth Estate.

    There’s a million and one things we can do; eg choose to buy local food or grow some of our own, buy highly efficient lights (LEDs), frdges, etc . . . search my website using “energy”, “sustainable bathrooms”, and other tags for suggestions. Good luck, and do come on one of the tours of my house if you wish to know more

  2. @felicity what do you suggest we do about it, since you want us to do something about it

  3. It’s simple, either we do something or stop complaining.
