Someone just asked me, “If you were Prime Minister for one day, what would you do?”
It made me think. This is what I came up with: Getting solar panels onto the roof of every home and community building so that we can all generate our own electricity and not rely totally on (centrally generated) power from fossil fuels or nuclear.
Here’s what some of my friends said:
Laurence: “I’d make tackling world poverty #1 priority.”
Paul: “pump all CO2 from power stations underground…”
Nic: “I’d pass a law forbidding anything to be built or manufactured that didn’t pass a strict environmental and social audit. And to those who say it will cripple business, I’d say: think of the opportunities! Oh yes, and all imports would have to pass the same criteria…”
Emily: “4 day weeks / 3 day weekends.”
Now it’s your turn. What would you do?
