I am wondering why people are putting family lives at risk, by visiting family, when they should be tucked away at home. It’s selfish and bizarre why they’re not sticking to the lock down rule.
We must all start to ‘get it.’ We are putting lives at risk, and setting ourselves up for more time indoors. Honestly, I’m not sure which bit of ‘lock down’ people don’t get it. Working from the ego means they won’t get or understand the importance of the measures now in place on lock down. They must.
It’s difficult enough having to live your life indoors, knowing that you can’t just pop out to the park with your family or out for a walk with friends, or spend time in each other’s company, frequenting pubs, restaurants, cinemas, and bars; or visit the hairdressers.
We will be able to do even less, when the Government decides we’ve not done enough, and they extend lock down for another 2 months. So let’s get on with it. It’s selfish when others leave those following instruction, and choose to do what they want, by driving on motorways and frequenting beaches and preparing barbeques.
Staying indoors is working. Air pollution levels in the UK have dropped significantly in the weeks since the country went into lock down; nitrous dioxide (NO2) levels have gone down, with some cities seeing levels falling by as much as 60% – NO2 is released from car exhausts and is a serious air pollutant. We must do more through the other end. We are killing ourselves and the natural world.
Scientists, and David Attenborough and Chris Packham are right. Now through the Coronavirus, we must ALL be changed people. We must do what’s right and save ourselves and the natural world. We mustn’t make our lives about our gas guzzling cars, or lifestyles. We must be changed people through the other end, we must start to look after the ‘natural world’ and help protect ourselves and our families, so that future generations may live.
Through lifestyles, we’re producing climate change that is affecting the natural world, with certain species now close to extinction. We must do what is expected. We must take our egos out of this, be selfless and start working together to reduce climate change and make the skies less polluting. We must start saving lives.
