I see from an article on the Dorset For Your Newsroom, Commuters take the Rush Hour Challenge, that Dorset NHS has an employee described as a “sustainability lead”. In these difficult financial time these are the sorts of posts that are a luxury we cannot afford. We need our NHS to be curing us of our ailments and not lecturing us or their staff on the latest green wash at our expense.
If we believe that we need to protect the planet for our children and grand children then we should start by not burdening them with our debts to pay for us to live high on the hog. Let those who occupy these roles go out and generate some wealth so that we can pay off our debts and then our children will be in a position to be able to afford to tackle whatever problems the future has to throw at us, manmade or not.
