The Life of a Dreamer

Ask me anything  

Hello! I'm Michelle. My head is usually in the clouds; taming dragons in a far off land, fighting trollocs with my warder, or flying through the stars in a blue box with a mad man. On Earth, I'm a sustainability major and I like ice cream.

My parents aren’t home

You know what that means

*sits in the living room instead of sealing myself away in my room*

this is too accurate 

*parents close the door*, *emerges slowly from room like an easily startled deer*

*Parents come home* *scurries back to room like frightened squirrel*

Y’all think this is a joke but it’s 100% accurate

I’m 24 and this is still accurate

Anonymous asked: Isn't it a good thing that they're scrapping the carbon tax? Electricity bills will go down


Answer:

australiansanta:

ah yes lets just make it cheaper and easier for carbon pollution to take place and allow companies to carbon pollute as much as they want and eat away at our already damaged environment/climate but hey man at least we saved a few hundred dollars right

ok so i’m not too educated in this field, i mean, i study urban and environmental planning and i’m in my third year, so i guess i’m a little educated, but this is just what i’ve picked up from different things over time studying this in different environmental/economical subjects and seeing things on the internet/on the news etc. i’m sure there’s other things that i’m not taking into consideration, but i’m not here to start an argument, i’m simply just saying a bunch of words that may even help open someone’s mind or give them a side they may not have heard before, so please don’t be sending me messages saying i’m an idiot for thinking this and whatnot (that’s a bit far fetched i know). i’ll take a less environmentally harmful option over a less economically harmful option any day. 

simply put, when the price of something goes up, less of it will be bought. the price of things determine how much we consume

it essentially boosts the need/desire to switch to a greener alternative, which helps both the environment and the person/companies wallet, which most likely wouldn’t have even gone through their minds if it wasn’t affecting them

when there isn’t a need or kind of persuading force (eg. carbon tax) to switch to a greener alternative to save money, there almost seems no need to switch, and staying with whatever they have at that moment seems like the most logical thing to do (woo i’m making money, who cares about the environment, i’m getting the do$h!)

lil example;

say the price of petrol goes up because of the tax, people won’t want to drive their cars as much, to save money, because filling up their tank means spending more money than before. this will increase their want for a more economically rewarding option, which basically would come from a more environmentally rewarding option (eg. a more fuel efficient car - more research effort will be put into making fuel efficient cars because over time the old thirsty on petrol cars will be phased out and not bought as much as they cost too much to run, so companies will be putting more effort into having more environmentally beneficial options to make them cheaper to run and thus make them more desirable and will sell. or even just riding a bike/walking - being fit and healthy, which obviously isn’t available in everyone’s situation)

over time this will benefit you because you will probably end up saving more money as you’ll be trying to consume less to reduce your carbon footprint, and gaining skills to become more wary of your carbon footprint (but i’m assuming most people will just call this ‘gaining skills for saving money’) and on top of that more green options will be desired/needed, so more effort will be put into meeting these needs/desires and making them available, aka green options. supply and demand

climate change is an important issue and has costs that don’t necessarily show up on our electricity bills but we pay nonetheless and we will pay more and more in the future. it’s really hard to have any positive movement towards a healthier climate, environment and future with a prime minister that DOESN’T BELIEVE IN CLIMATE CHANGE. sure, since we have been using all the options and methods we are using now for so long that the thought of changing to a different method may seem a little scary or completely stupid, but at the end of the day, it’s what is needed, so we need to take action before it gets too late. i’m sure some of you think climate change is petty and not going to affect us any time soon so who cares, and i think that’s pretty selfish and stubborn 

so no, i don’t think it’s a good thing that they just scrapped the carbon tax

if you’re thinking of sending me a message about this just know that it most likely won’t sway what i think and i’ve heard most of it before, i used to think the carbon tax was dumb until i started learning about it (because i knew nothing about it lmao), and there isn’t much going back for me 

if you read all this wow i’m sorry have a good day and ur eyes must hurt
