Well we could just try to reduce greenhouse gases rather than a mass cull.

Not really achievable with so many humans on the planet.
The most environmentally friendly thing you can do is to either kill yourself or someone else!! ohmy.gif

A sensible solution at last! The reality is that the population expansion is unsustainable and therefore a mass extinction is the only practical outcome. We don't own the planet, even though we like to think we do, it "tolerates" our existence but will have no qualms about wiping us out if it means saving itself. Maybe in a thousand years or maybe next week but it is going to happen.

Will that be before or after Sharia Law comes to the UK?

Doubt it will make any difference but if pushed I would say after then everyone can blame this "new" god for our demise.

What has Sharia Law got to do with climate change? You are obsessed... most "rational" people on this forum understand that the little old UK can't make any difference with regards to it without a global solution.... but crack on yourself if it makes you feel "warm" inside... we'll all be warm soon.😂 Do like these lovely Sunny hot Easter days though.🌝🌞

Correct!
And Sharia Law, Brexit, or any other trivia we care to make up, will have little effect smile.gif

Yup, we could all drive diesels, cut CO2.

We should give up carbon and live in caves yay!
We could show those pesky Chinese, Indians and Americans how to do it...After all we won't need central heating anymore. Bit hot today...😂

For all you football fans.

From West Berks Climate Action Network


Here's a football dilemma to think about. Arsenal and Chelsea play each other in the Europa cup final at the end of the month. Arsenal and Chelsea are both based in London, less than 10 miles apart, yet the final is in Baku, Azerbaijan that's a 5500 mile round trip for every fan from either club that attends. It's a 68,000 seater stadium, so you can do the maths. Does anyone else think it's a bit daft setting the venue a year in advance and creating this level of unnecessary air travel and carbon emissions?

Hmmm!

AutoExpress: Electric cars would cut CO2 emissions by only 0.4 per cent.

Yeah.. but if we make ourselves poor via being green it's fine and we will feel good about ourselves... funny that. I still can't get over the teenagers I saw putting green save the planet placards in the back of a Range Rover after protesting in Newbury. 🤣😂

Climate change is all fake news according to Trump and thereís no point in doing anything according to Farage.

Iíd say we should do all we can and lobby other governments to follow suit. Itís like saying thereís no point in tidying my driveway because next doorís is a mess.

And yours will be a mess tomorrow...it's called weather. Yes something should be done but it needs a global solution. Us setting an "example" will just prove fruitless and make everyone a lot poorer than brexit ever would. ..you can always set a personal example if you like and become carbon neutral. Why not tax "driveways"... good idea I've come up with. Must put it forward to the greens...

Yeah, quite agree, so when are you going over to china to tell them "you're doing it wrong"?

That's right.
There's no such thing a free energy.
There's always an environmental cost in addition to a financial one, and usually both.

Did you read it? The issue isnít that it doesnít reduce the environmental cost. Itís the argument Iíve heard for days by anyone of a gammon hue, thereís no point if China doesnít.
