We are on a heat advisory here and it is very hot. Early in the morning, as soon as wind-footed Iris hits the horizon, I will depart en ville to sit in a bat cave – as would befit me, since I am Mayan.
Whenever I go to Peru or Bolivia I am shocked at the ecological devastation, and whenever I return I am shocked at the wasteful standard of living which causes this.
On my most recent return, what struck me in particular was the use of hot water and air conditioning at once. In honor of this and of my being low on cash this summer, I have turned off the hot water in my house.
If I were in South America, you know, there would hardly be any hot water, anyway, and it would be winter. Not using hot water is also an eco-friendly measure, and it frustrates the oil and gas industry.
I invite others to follow my lead on this.
