Just reducing the workweek to 4 days would cut UK’s carbon footprint as much as if all cars were eliminated

How much is wage slavery killing not only you, but the planet too?

Scientists have an idea, according to a recent article from the Guardian:

The introduction of a four-day working week with no loss of pay would dramatically reduce the UK’s carbon footprint and help the country meet its binding climate targets, according to a report.

The study found that moving to a four-day week by 2025 would shrink the UK’s emissions by 127m tonnes, a reduction of more than 20% and equivalent to taking the country’s entire private car fleet off the road.

That’s right. As world wide lockdowns to contain the pandemic suggested last year, reducing the work-week world-wide by just one day could basically end global warming immediately.

Wage slavery is killing you and the planet.
