Deregulation – Let’s Kill the Environment
Posted on April 7, 2023
To start this blog, I’d like to get one thing straight. I think looking after the environment is a big deal. We only have one planet hand down to future generations, so in my opinion, it’s our responsibility to take care of it. So, when people start talking about deregulating environmental laws, it’s in my nature to get fucking annoyed about it.
Here are some of the reasons why deregulating environmental laws might not be the best idea:
- It leads to pollution. Without regulations in place to limit pollution, rogue companies start to cut corners in order to save money. Those who are struggling to stay competitive, follow suit. This, in turn, leads to increased air and water pollution. Call me a leftist snowflake but I don’t like that idea.
- Environmental deregulation harms wildlife. When we mess with the environment, we’re not just affecting humans. We’re also affecting all the animals that live in that environment. Deregulation leads to habitat destruction and harm to wildlife populations and ecosystems.
- It causes major health problems. Pollution isn’t just bad for the environment; it’s also bad for our health. Increased pollution leads to higher rates of respiratory illness and an host of other health issues, such as the consumption of poor quality food or swimming in turds.
- It’s just plain irresponsible. We only have one planet to live on, and it’s our responsibility to take care of it. Deregulating environmental laws is like saying, “Fuck it, who needs clean air and water anyway?” It’s a pretty shortsighted and dim witted approach reserved for people who seem more worried about little boats.
So, there you have it: deregulating environmental laws is a shit idea. Okay, it might save companies a bit of money in the short term, but in the long term, it will have devastating consequences for the planet and everyone who lives on it. I know too many people who care more about football results, conspiracy theories and refugees coming to kill them, rather than the serious issue of deregulation. Our government is obsessed with it because it makes money for them and their donors.
if you think it’s a good idea, you have fallen for the twaddle pushers who believe growth in the economy is more important than looking after the planet. Once the ecosystems start breaking down and the food chains collapse, it won’t be long before the human race follows. I expect for many animals, that would be a blessed relief.
Call me a woke leftist if you like but as the saying goes, “There is no Planet B.”
