We are changing the climate!
Rural estate "Huize Dordth"
We are changing the climate. That’s an action taken in the western world to make us realize that global warming is a severe danger to our planet. But what can we individuals do about it? Recently I ordered solar panels for the second time. My first 16 solar panels were destroyed by lightening. When I still had them the consumption of electricity was very low, so low that at one time the electricity company sent someone to check my meter, for they suspected me of cheating. I was very angry, especially after they sent me a bill that was extremely high, even higher than I ever had before. I took photos of the panels on my roof, copied all papers of my purchase and wrote many letters. At last one of the people of the electricity company helped me a lot and I got my money back. Now I shall have only 3 panels, which will make a difference of course, but not as much as my previous 16 panels.
In the meantime I use my bike instead of driving a car, if the distance is not too far. Other wise I have to travel by public transport.
Last weekend my sister, brother-in-law and I cycled to my nephew’s house, it was only 8 kilometres and there was no wind, the sun was shining and everything was peaceful and lovely.
Here are some photos of our trip.
