Dirty Cape Town’s Doctor Death

13 February 2013, 14:01

Experts have proved that dirty Cape Town air is worser than Witbank and Limpopo’s coalfields. And at least the people of Witbank are friendly.

So, next time you Capetonians try and get smug about your unlikeable little city, ponder the fact that you are breathing noxious fumes blown out and then back in by that horrible wind, the Cape Doctor. They should rename that wind Doctor Death. (And Capetonians are no longer smug, they are ‘smog’. *laughs*)

While I would not recommend that anyone actually live in that vile city (thanks CSIR Scientists), maybe this should be a wake up call for all South Africans to raise their personal bar regards ACTION TO BE TAKEN instead of just moan, moan, moaning!

Start by cycling to work. And if you are going to cycle anyway, why not try re-cycling? Try cooking in ONE pot –one pot wonders taste the best and use less energy.

Cut out meat, or at least reduce your consumption by half. Meat eaters, your selfishness is not actually fair on those of us with morals.

Also cut out smoking. Nothing worse than smokers except Capetonians. Correction: nothing worse than smokers except a Capetonian smoker *laughs again*.

So, if we all try to do our bit we can improve things. Obviously you cannot all move to Plettenberg Bay, but it is worth a visit to see what can be achieved with a bit of clever planning and having an intelligentsia that puts the environment before selfish personal gain.

Blame Democracy?

Democracy has been nothing but a confusing ideology especially to the previously disadvantaged and nothing more perpetuates this phenomenon than politicians not delivering on their promises. Read more...
