It makes me laugh to see all these holier than thou law firms wittering on about their carbon footprints. I bet the partners haven’t swapped their Mercs and BMW’s for Fiat Pandas, And I bet they still swan off for their three or four foreign holidays each year – “Do as I say, not as I do”. Climate change is the religion of hypocrites. If governments really believed the effects were as drastic as the experts say there would be an immediate ban on all unnecessary travel. In reality it’s just another means for governments to control and restrict the lives of their citizens and to distract them from the fact that their economy is heading for bankruptcy.

Even if you don’t believe in climate change, surely the bottom line will matter. The trade off? As simple as flicking a switch.
