The Guardian reports on a study that Redland in Bristol has the highest proportion of residents worried about the environment and trying to do something about it. Yet it also has one of the highest negative impacts on the environment because the people living there are affluent and the recycling they do does not counteract their extra spending.
“A study earlier this year by Exeter University…reported that people who claimed to have the greenest lifestyles were often some of the main culprits behind global warming. Stewart Barr, who led the research, told the Guardian: “Green living is largely something of a myth.”
Is there a way around this?
