Leaky & cold homes, mould and climate change

When I look what’s happening and is most discussed in the building industry new at the moment, the headline above sums it all up.

Leaky buildings, either from exterior or interior, are all too common. They happen due to a combination of wrong materials at the wrong place wrongly designed and badly installed – usually it’s a combination unless it’s incredibly badly designed or incredibly badly installed. Similar things are applicable to cold houses with a lack of insulation that is incorrectly installed with thermal bridges that were not designed out.

Import taxes create losers

it just prevents you from importing and using a good product that would otherwise advance technology in the country, make the standard of living cheaper and better, just to protect national companies financial interests.

While I stand in Sea World, watching the pelicans with their broken or missing wings caused by boat hits and the like, I get sidetracked by the jetski show as the smell and white clouds of fuel gets into my nose. I suddenly notice the noise of the idling helicopter in the background that is waiting to take off again to take the next load of tourists for a spin. It’s running continuously and never stops during opening times.
I recall the talk of the dolphin trainers about the environmental awareness that the park is trying to teach its visitors and that all depends on our choices that we are doing on a daily basis. This starts to sound very shallow when looking at all the energy and the fuel burnt on a daily basis in this park. I would love to see some action to the words and the environmental awareness.
