Climate Change Ignorance
Met accused of ignorance about climate change - Telegraph
Police are advising householders to install movement-sensitive security lights to protect their homes from intruders at night.
Jenny Jones, the former Deputy Mayor of London, a member of the Metropolitan Police Authority and London assembly member for the Green Party, accused the police of failing to address the "environmental ramifications" of Operation Bumblebee.
She said: "The Met simply does not get Climate change, and neither does the Mayor of London. They need a basic education in these issues before we all drown in our beds.
The average motion-sensor security light goes off five to eight times per night for around five minutes, meaning that a household would notch up 152 hours of extra wattage a year and add around 22,000 tons of carbon dioxide to London's carbon footprint.
Hours of wattage that is! It all comes down to priorities, are you more worried about Billy Burglar breaking in or the sea level suddenly rising tonight? Which is more likely to happen and cause you harm?
Maybe I should turn green and invest in a night vision rifle scope and do away with the krieg lights at The Castle....
