Does Joburg Need To be Any Greener?
Any question like that is becoming increasingly silly. We can no longer afford to ignore the environment (as a source of food, fuel and bad weather). Johannesburg is the world's largest man-made forest. Think that's enough? At home I have coughed up black gunk, which I'm guessing is car soot. We can do a lot to look at our pollution; not only on our highways, but also from SASOL.
Efficiency is important, but changing how we consume, changing our lifestyles is the way we can affect real change. The latter though is harder, and requires sacrifice.
