There are great pressures on The Life Of Man. We had heard about the idea of getting rid of the beer fridge but at least here in Canada there were ads settting out that the beer fridge was costing almost 120 beer a year to run. There was a Net Beer Gain (or "NBG"). But this news coming from the Northern Territories of Australia has us dismayed and has led to the formation of the Anti-Anti Beer Fridge League to support efforts to introduce the green principles into The Life of Man:
- The A-ABFL recognizes that one of the greatest polluters in every day life is the gas powered lawn mower. Accordingly, the A-ABFL advocates for the banning of lawn mowing as an impediment to a well spent afternoon with a chilled ale or lager.
- Another source of greenhouse gases is the pointless driving of kids around to sports and clubs that they were not very good at anyway. The A-ABFL advocates for the banning of such time wasting as an impediment to an increase in NBG.
- A key - and somewhat forgotten - cause of the thinning of the ozone is the energy consumed to get to beer. The A-ABFL advocates for the entire restructuring of urban planning to ensure each citizen is no farther than a ten minute walk from a beer store or decent pub.
These are simple demands. It is one thing to blame the beer fridge but another to balance its net effect - the joy it brings weighed against the costs it incurs. What else could the A-ABFL take on as a plank in its platform of policies aimed at bringing a sustainability to The Life Of Man while increasing NBG? Join us and let us know.
