Let me tell you about yourself... [Feb. 2nd, 2007|09:20 pm]
Douglas Spencer
I've seen a couple of people doing this so ...
    Comment and I will:

    1) Tell you why I friended you.
    2) Associate you with a song/film.
    3) Tell a random fact about you.
    4) Tell a first memory about you.
    5) Associate you with a character/pairing.
    6) Ask something I've always wanted to know about you.
    7) Show you my favourite user pic of yours.
    8) In retort, you must spread this disease in your LJ.
Firstly, I'm only going to do the first five or so (unless you're later than that and you're really interesting, or I'm really trying to avoid starting something else). Secondly, I'm not too hot on songs and films, so you might want to manage your expectations about question two. Finally, you don't really have to do that number eight thing if you're disinclined so to do.

You're more single-minded in your obsessions -- thinking here particularly about things like energy consumption and carbon footprint -- than most people I know.

I think that one comes from too much knowledge. You have to remember that I did my degree in environmental science (well, half of it) - I've followed earth sciences ever since then and I've seen climate change move from not even being on the syllabus at university becasuse we hadn't even realised it was happening, to general fears about something that would happen over hundreds of years, to something that is going to have a major impact in my own lifetime.

The choice is either to fiddle while Rome burns, or to try and do something - no matter how small - to try and save this rather lovely planet that we live on, not to forget the millions of people who are going to die as a result of climate change. If reducing my CO2 emissions saves just one of those people, then it's worth doing.

If the danger was less, I'd probably be a lot less focused.

I've always loved 'Over the Hills and Far Away' even before I encountered Sharpe. Don't forget, we're going to filk that one.

When I first saw that icon - grin - I begged to be allowed to copy it.
