The crazy part is most of us already know what needs to be done to cut down on carbon emissions… corporations just don’t give a damn.


Imagine if we cut out most commutes and most business travel (including almost all heavily polluting air travel) because we had a technology that made it unnecessary… oh wait.


A nine-day fortnight worked very well for me, long ago. It was a highly valued and well used condition of employment. Life was chilled. Monday mornings certainly weren’t a problem and everything got done, both at work and elsewhere. Three day weekends every two weeks. What’s not to love?


Encouraging Working from home permanently would do the most to limit carbon footprint.
