Environmental Unhealth

[Picture of electric heaters outside]I WAS SOMEWHAT AMAZED TO SEE FOUR THREE-BAR ELECTRIC FIRES ATTACHED TO THE OUTSIDE WALL OF A PUB IN THE CITY CENTRE.

Furthermore, two of them were full on — and it was before 8 am! And as though all that was not enough — they were heating the rubbish bin!

I cannot see breakfasters or diners wanting to sit outside next to the bins, and anyway, I didn’t see any tables and chairs.  It cannot merely be for tobacco smokers?  Not at 8am and next to a smelly gastro-pub bin, surely not!

Could this Argyle Street pub be the source of global warming? Is this a valiant Glaswegian attempt to combat the foul weather?

Perhaps this is to encourage recycling of food — the heat may attract homeless people to rummage through the bins. Then again it may attract vermin — or be a danger to birds or drugged up vandals.  The possibilities for harm and danger are probably endless. One wonders what the insurance is for all the family filled flats in the tenement above? One wonders what the profit margins must be for this place to be able to afford such extravagance.

Things are getting worse when 12kW can be burned away all night long to warm up lung-cancered Glaswegian drunks. This is bad for the environment, so someone ought to call the environmental health about this — refer them here to see the photographic proof; who would otherwise believe this one?
