I would think in time that would change as technology progresses. Itís not a reason to give up.

Doesn't matter much at your age either, when it happens it happens. Driving a battery on wheels just won't cut it.

So nothing we do makes any difference and itís probably not happening anyway. Been listening to the Donald?

I am afraid Sir Will is correct. Our ability to increase life expectancy and limit global conflicts combined with a massive increase in global living standards across the world has resulted in a population explosion. In effect we are victims of our own success. Mother nature will intervene and this may happen through climate change. I am afraid Newres composting and splitting his rubbish into 7 different bins just ain't gonna make a jot of difference.

Nope, not while China is commissioning one new coal fired power station per week, South America is deforesting the Amazon basin, Americans all wanna drive six liter V8,s because reasons, India is dismantling the world's shipping fleets on its shores, throwing all the poisonous waste back into the sea, Russia doesn't give a **** because, well, Russia. But newres and a bunch of febrile, man made fibre wearing, drive to the edge of London before parking up and getting the tube to the protest, strawberries flown in from Spain eating loons think that driving a Pious is going to solve all the problems. Me, not so much.
