Why the name?
World Tainted Green is a South African service, and in South Africa the environment is very important, it is to our service also. Tinted would have been too modern. The word tainted refers to decay, and we believe the world, by mistreating the environment and itself has begun to decay, like a beautiful old tree in a rain forest. By neglect the world is slowly moving by force towards a greener future. That does not mean we endorse controversial theories such as Anthropological Global Warming, given that possibly only about 75% of scientists believe that it is Green House Gases caused by human beings which have caused climate change. Our service prefers to take a more neutral term on the issue.
