Each month, Jude hosts a colour challenge, Life in Colour. The colour for November is black and/or grey.
This may be my last contribution to this month’s colour challenge. Or possibly not if the sky keeps crying. Today, I have four photos to share. Three were taken by my True Love. I managed only one which is a damn sight more than was achieved at Cop26.
Ode to Cop26
Man cannot improve on perfection.
Here I am. Can you see me?
Look at me. Know what it is that you sacrifice
for more time, where there’s none.
I wonder how many weekends there will be before TEOTWAWKI? Aussies, maybe we should prep now by demanding that all political parties undertake to immediately exempt EVs from the luxury car sales tax and remove fringe benefits tax concessions for all ICE cars. C’mon, there is potentially another federal budget in the offing prior to the forthcoming election! Talk it up. Should the feds also be facilitating a capability and market for ICE to EV conversions? Surely that’s an area where our federal government could employ its best brains (Hahahaha, not you, Mr Taylor). There are a lot of embedded carbon emissions in the steel of the current Australian car fleet. Let me know what the practicalities are. I would rather convert than render my cars obsolete. I wonder how much it would cost to import a second-hand EV from Norway? Possible solution for readers on the other side of the world?
Vote 1 for climate action.
About the photos – Photos 1, 2 and 4 taken by my True Love. I snapped Photo 3 of the water. The last photo of the Noisy Miner was a mistake. My True Love thought the ISO was set to auto but it was actually set to ISO200 in very dim light conditions. What? Noisy Miner? Yes, I know that’s a bit punny. I crack myself up.
