Cost of electricity

I simply believe people should live where they are comfortable with the local climate and where they need minimal consumption of energy to be comfortable. In my peculiar manner of thinking, a place like Las Vegas shouldn't even exist. It represents pretty much everything that's wrong with U.S. culture.


You can reason and argue with me all you want, but that is the way I have always felt about humans living on this precious planet we are unfortunately destroying with our collective ignorance and arrogance. It doesn't make me right or you wrong, it only means we have different points of view. Thanks for sharing yours.
Un saludo.

The problem is there is nothing any of us can do about it. The damage is done; and any minuscule improvement we make as individuals, is completely undone many times over with the next oil spill, or military action. We have been sold the idea that we as individuals can alter the course of climate change if we just buy an electric car, keep our house uncomfortably cold or hot, let our lawn die, and recycle everything, then making us feel guilty about it if we don't. Until major corporations and governments get serious about fixing climate change, we--here in Zihua--at least have a good perch from which to watch the world burn, and that, I'm afraid, is as good as it's gonna get.
