Want to be a Superhero?

Calling All Superheroes!

Great – Because now you can! Judging by the success of superhero films, TV shows and comics, pretty much most of us have dreamt of having superpowers at least once in our lives. But, I wonder, if we really did have superpowers, would we even use them?

The Nemesis

Usually, when the likes of the Avengers save the planet from some diabolical threat, we applaud that as a superpower. In real life though, there is a just as diabolical threat facing the planet right now but no superheroes to stop it. The threat, of course, is climate change.

For decades now, we’ve all heard about the damage being done to the planet and gradually matters have improved – but not quickly enough. Now we need to up our game, fast, if the damage is not to be irreversible.

Pick Your Superhero Power!

So, if you’ve ever wanted to save the planet and be a superhero, now’s your chance! Just pick one of the following as your new “superpower” and save the planet:

  • Drive with windows up;
  • Go “meat and dairy free” one day a week;
  • Reuse whatever you can, bags, jars coffee cups, water bottles;
  • Recycle everything;
  • Buy recyclable only where possible
  • Putting lids on pans when cooking;
  • Dry clothes outside;
  • Keep car tyres inflated;
  • Sign an online petition with an organisation like WWF or Greenpeace;
  • Lobby your MP;
  • Walk or use public transport;
  • Turn off lights;
  • Shorter showers;
  • Try zero waste

Imagine if every person on the planet changed just one thing in their lives from this list, what a difference that would make. Wouldn’t hurt to try?

What could you change today to save the world?
