DN Opinion. We have too much money to care about the environment

car travel increases and the volume increases according to an article in dagens nyheter on 2 may. For most families it does not seem to be any problem to have two cars, a detached house, some children and the opportunity to go on to go abroad with flights one or two times per year.

If, at each choice in life asked ourselves, is this a choice that is of benefit or harmful to the environment? And after that ask the question, " is there anything unfavourable to the environment that I can think of that change? What would happen then?

the Knowledge we have, but we have the will? And why is it so difficult to make these lifestyle changes?

standards that benefit the environment that we hold ourselves to, in my opinion. Flygskam, how many have actually been affected by it? The media report daily about the environmental changes due to human impact.

But that every single person has a responsibility. It doesn't seem to really reach down into the individual homes where the man hurries around with the car on the kids activities, work my ass off to afford the life that sets higher and higher demands on activities and experiences.

I have just moved to a 50-talsradhus where the gardens bloom from march to september. Where the house's previous owner has put a lot of work on the flowers that bloom year after year. It is a wonderful garden that I enjoy. I am grateful to the previous generation who built this, but thinking of how many in my own generation that would catch this in the clamour of all the other possible activities?

we really have to change? Children? House? Car no 2? Car no 1? Flyresandet?

I bike or ride the bus to work, have not flown in two years, has a car in the household, electricity is powered by wind energy, the laws of torn clothes and shop often. I am absolutely not perfect from an environmental perspective, but I try to keep it in mind in my choices.

What choices are you making?
