    But it's not really the definition of absurdity, is it? If you're plumbing those depths then no one will be able to protest about anything.

    There's a global smear campaign going on against her, particularly in Australia. One has to ask why?

    It's not hard to figure out why this is the case.

    Companies exist to make money. If you wanted to set up a car company at any point in the last 100 years and also wanted to be profitable (which almost all companies do want) then which would you choose? You'd almost certainly choose the form that has all the infrastructure in place and almost all of the market.

    An electric car is more expensive and less convenient. It's a lot harder to sell. That's all it comes down to, people prefer their convenient lifestyle more than making some sacrifices to help the planet, and I include myself 100% in that category. It's not because climate change is some profiteering racket; most of the world's richest people have their money from oil.

    BAFTA wants comedy series to mention climate change. Yet they ban 'It ain't half hot mum'?.

    David Attenborough - "We're running out of time to save the planet." A personal message to Sir David: You've spent the past half a century amassing a £27M fortune, how have you done this? By jetting all over the world dragging an entourage of cameramen, sound recordists, producers, etc. with you. You are personally accountable for burning hundreds of tons of jet fuel! Factor in the quadrillions of hours that your programmes have clocked up on hundreds of millions of TV sets all across the world and this electricity usage would have taken the contents of several coal mines to generate. David Attenborough (Productions) Ltd is a gross polluter, easily outstripping the pollution generated by some small undeveloped nations. Prince Charles & the rest of the Saxe-Coburg-Gothas. are always lecturing us about climate change whilst driving Aston Martins, Rollers, Range Rovers and taking up entire jumbo jets or super yachts for pleasure. You're a bit brighter than them Sir David, can't you smell the hypocrisy on yourself? You reek of it!

    If Climate change doesn't kill us I'm not sure I want to live in approved thought only society.

    There is no doubt climate change (or as I still prefer to call it, global warming) is happening, and is a very real threat.

    To deny this is severe ignorance, stupidity or I don't actually know what.

    The latest piece to the horrific jigsaw is that three European countries broke their all time highest temperature records last month alone.

    Climate crisis blamed as temperature records broken in three nations - https://www.theguardian.com/world/2019/jul/24/summers-second-heatwave-set-to-break-records-across-europe

    Yes, this is due to industrial pollution, with road vehicles and planes massively adding to it.

    The biggest problem however is we're actually devastating the world's natural, organic carbon sponge, in deforestation at an inconceivable rate.

    I also learnt recently about soil being another huge organic carbon collector but we're also digging this up across the globe, releasing ever more carbon.

    So not only is our carbon output massively increasing, our natural defences are being massively reduced.

    Hence the acceleration.

    Hence my thread title, as I'm not sure that ANYTHING we do now can hold the current levels, and certainly not reduce them.

    It's funny, as to me, this threat should be seen as immediate, akin to the movies where all the Governments join forces to fight off a large meteorite or an alien visitation.

    However, such is the greed and stupidity of humans, PR companies are actually being employed to spout anti global warming propaganda ffs!!

    Reminds me of this cartoon, which I may have stolen off here in the first place:

    Whilst I hold little liking for the creatures they are held as pets by many and can be cute when scurrying about one's scrotum. Maybe that's what she's missing out on.

    Which kind of proves my point that it's all about money.

    If governments/ businesses were serious about doing something then they'd ban petrol and diesel cars and start investing in electric ones rather than charging us 20p for a bag (400% hike in just a few years) and other such scams.

    Are you suggesting she needs to spend less time protesting and more time investigating my nether regions?

    How old is she again before I agree to anything?

    Edit: just checked - 16.

    I'll leave her for trogg blue.

    It doesn't prove your point at all.

    Governments and businesses are not serious about climate change, that's the whole point. This is why autistic teens like Greta are having to take matters into their own hands. I'm quite sure that she is not making as much money as Gazprom out of this.

    What happened to global warming
    It was repackaged into "climate change"

    That odious yank twat "politician"
    has made a fortune from it
    Flying in jets (filling the air with pollution)
    around the world with his talks
    And flogging his books
    just think of the amount of trees destroyed
    So he can spout his propaganda against the masses
    and they have the fucking audacity
    to lecture Joe public on
    How we live
    Fuck you
    cheeky fucks :thumbup:
