Which way are you looking?

The words you use in your everyday language show whether you are looking forwards to your future or constantly wanting to go back to your past.

Which way are you looking? (Image heading)

Sometimes you hear something on the TV news, and you can’t help yourself saying, “you are joking…!” That happened to me the other day when I heard the newsreader say that there were plans to open the UK’s first deep coal mine in 30 years.

Now, forgive me, but I hadn’t caught up with the notion that we would have a new coal mine in the UK. However, plans have been mooted for the past three years to bring back coal mining. And, strangely, 40 Conservative MPs support the project. That’s odd because, under Margaret Thatcher, the Tory party was behind coal mining’s swift demise, sending many parts of the UK into deep local recessions.

We now know that coal-fired power is environmentally damaging. Indeed, there are only four coal-fired power stations in the UK, and they are all due to close within the next four years. Plus, the National Grid just calls on them when necessary. Much of the time, we do not use electricity that is generated by burning coal.

So, why the rush to go back to coal? The answer, apparently, is that it can help in steel production. What seems to have eluded the people…
