The Young German Environmentalist

Extracts from this document...


The Young German Environmentalist I I buckled the seat belt and pulled out my new issue of "Green Living". I immediately felt the air conditioning blast from above my seat, and I noticed the millions of personal televisions in the back of the passengers' headrests. There were lights everywhere; the whole cabin was glowing with some sort of technology. It was disgusting. How could an aeroplane consist of some many unnecessary devices! These commuters didn't need any of this junk. About halfway into the flight, the little boy sitting next to me decided that it was appropriate to take out his 'Gameboy' and start playing. Not only was he wasting chemical energy from the batteries, he was wasting his own time on a useless toy. I glared at him, and he immediately put it away. It seemed he was looking for sympathy but I wasn't interested. The boy decided instead to take out a juice box and watch a movie. ...read more.


I was told there would be people waiting for me with a sign reading "Kla�s." I found people waiting for me with an upside down sign reading "Kl�s�." I had realised that the airport was not the only disorganised area in Britain. I counted a family of four around the card; parents, a daughter and a son. I puffed out my chest and walked over to them. In my most posh German accent I said, "Guten Tag, I am Kla�s." After an awkward but brief introduction, we decided to go home. The family seemed very nice, and I had almost forgotten about my flight trauma. But everything was about to come rushing back. III The family had come to the airport by car, which I had no objection against, as long as the car wasn't a 'gas-guzzling' four by four which ran at one mile per gallon. Yet the family, being uneducated about 'global warming' and how it will affect all of us were not too 'green.' ...read more.


The room was a small, but snug size. There was a window next to the bed, and very small bedside cabinet. The room was perfect; except for one thing. It was a mess. I really didn't want to trouble the Browns, as they had been so kind to me. Although they were not ecologically friendly, I felt I could change that, and that all I needed to was to educate them. So, having set the alarm clock, I lay in bed. I lay in bed, twiddling my thumbs, eyes wide open. After 20 minutes, I realised I had had enough. I got up and started organising the room. Magazines in pile one; board games on pile two; paper waste in pile three, and so on. I finally finished after about an hour, and I had successfully created sixteen separate bins for all the different types of waste. Having done so, I could relax. I lay down in bed, and got to sleep how I do every night: thinking about tight 'speedos' and moustaches. How I missed Germany. ...read more.
