Waste Not! Want Not! Week 21…Climate Change…

Wow…What a week…Climate change is becoming a hot potato for governments around the world…The people are speaking…They have found their voice and a powerful one it is…Well done one and all…

green foot prints eco system

So much is happening in the world around us that there are going to have to be many changes or life as we know it will not exist…Climate change, food. plastic, waste they are all connected to each other they all affect one another…Seriously the world is in trouble it may not seem like that to many of you cocooned in your comfy part of the world but food affects our health as does climate change everything is interlinked…

Young Greta Thunberg met with some Uk politicians and gave them a few home truths telling them as a young person sees it without any thought of being politically correct just telling it as she sees it…Go, Greta…

It sounds to me that around the world The People have had enough of politicians their inaction and fundamental greed…

This young lady shows her dedication by her actions she travels from country to country not by aeroplane but by train so as to keep her carbon footprint down…


If you watch these videos I defy you not to be moved and not to admire a young girls passion and dream for a better world…

She is correct when she said it is not being highly publicised which is the case about many things like this atrocity which happened in Japan…

Have the world’s newspapers allowed themselves to be gagged…Do we no longer have ” Free Press”…It was hard-won… Newspapers began circulating in the 17th century. The first real newspaper in England was printed in 1665. The first successful daily newspaper in Britain was printed in 1702. The first American newspaper was printed in 1690. It was called Publick Occurrences Both Foreign and Domestic. The first newspaper in Canada was the Halifax Gazette in 1752. The first daily American newspaper was published in 1784.

Media companies are supposed to serve the public interest. Sometimes that’s at odds with the conglomerate owners who control traditional media voices. I think it is happening more and more that news is being stifled…

There are some powerful people in this world and they seem as if they can stop anything…

This ” Invisible East China Sea oil spill for example…

A fiery collision that sank an Iranian tanker in the East China Sea a month ago has resulted in an environmental threat that experts say is unlike any before: an almost invisible type of petroleum has begun to contaminate some of the most important fishing grounds in Asia, from China to Japan and beyond.

Environmental Disaster! Massive dam wall collapse at Australian mine threatens Murray-Darling system...Once again the greed of the Australian government is revealed.

The one thing I love about Australian Press is how they tell it like it is…Australia is just one beautiful country which is being betrayed by its government who allow big corporations to line their pockets …

We need people like Greta Thunberg and Jeremy Buckingham to tell us how it is AND then like the protesters in London last week with fellow Authors and Bloggers Sue Hampton and Leslie Tate who joined the London protests and the others around the world, we as people who live in this beautiful world need to not only agree but stand up and be counted…as well!

Politicians work for us...We as the consumer choose where we buy our food from…We have a voice…That voice is now being heard…Can you hear my voice…Can your children and your neighbours hear YOUR VOICE…

Time to speak out and be heard! Just like Sue Hampton and Leslie Stewart Tate …

Let us start with Sue who is one of my friends on FB and posts beautiful pictures of herself with an equally beautiful baby…Who would have thought I certainly didn’t that she would join the throngs …Yes, there were many people from all walks of life who felt strongly enough to say “Enough is enough” and I will make my voice heard…If I still lived in the Uk I would have joined them…Sue Hampton and Leslie Tate did!

Sue on the front line

Here is Sue’s account...Not the press who showed pictures of the rubbish and mess that was left behind…False News once again…But a lady with the courage of her convictions…xxx

Sue was not there alone she was with her partner Leslie Tate knowing what the consequences that their actions could be…Read all about it here


Thank you from me Sue and Leslie for your actions…You are both to be admired and congratulated for standing up and sending a message to not only the people but to the government that…

The People have Spoken and Acted…xxx

Thank you for reading this post and please pop over to both Sue and Leslie’s blogs to read the whole story about their arrests and leave a message to show them that they have our support in the blog world…xxx

About Carol Taylor:

Enjoying life in The Land Of Smiles I am having so much fun researching, finding new, authentic recipes both Thai and International to share with you. New recipes gleaned from those who I have met on my travels or are just passing through and stopped for a while. I hope you enjoy them.

I love shopping at the local markets, finding fresh, natural ingredients, new strange fruits and vegetable ones I have never seen or cooked with. I am generally the only European person and attract much attention and I love to try what I am offered and when I smile and say Aroy or Saab as it is here in the north I am met with much smiling.

Some of my recipes may not be in line with traditional ingredients and methods of cooking but are recipes I know and have become to love and maybe if you dare to try you will too. You will always get more than just a recipe from me as I love to research and find out what other properties the ingredients I use contain to improve our health and wellbeing.

The environment is also something I am passionate about and there will be more on this on my blog this year

Exciting for me hence the title of my blog, Retired No One Told Me! I am having a wonderful ride and don’t want to get off, so if you wish to follow me on my adventures, then welcome! I hope you enjoy the ride also and if it encourages you to take a step into the unknown or untried, you know you want to…….Then, I will be happy!

More and more of my blogging friends have joined me on MeWe…A social media site which is fairly new and which promises much without the restrictions some other social media sites are choosing to impose on many of us…Join me if you will on  mewe.com/i/caroltaylor3

        Thais use fruit in many salads which has certainly widened my thinking on what can be combined..Have a great weekend, Karen … 🙂 xx

    You are quite correct it is never simple and unless there is some inconvenience it would have no effect. The police did act with calm and kindness to those who were arrested which was good to see unlike what is happening in France where the police are being quite high handed and causing many unwarranted injuries…A sad state of affairs…

    Yes I have been following Sue, a Facebook friend I have never met in real life. How brave and stoical. It’s easy for anyone to criticise, but how many of us would get up and do it. Respect to both the protesters and police who have all acted peacefully – compare with gilets jaune in Paris. It did however also inconvenience people who cycle and use public transport and the staff who needed to get to St. Thomas’ hospital nearby, these matters are never simple.
