It seems that those of a green disposition really hate us, almost as much as they despise themselves. I swore at the radio this morning when some greeny on the Today programme accused E.On of crimes against humanity because of burning coal after 114 people were arrested apparently about to try to shut the Ratcliffe on Soar power station down. We’ll have enough power cuts to look forward to in coming years already with our shambolic energy policy without misguided swampys throwing spanners in the works. Putting aside whether co2 is actually harmful or not, if we can’t generate enough electricity to meet consumer demand then society will rapidly regress to something akin to soviet-style russia.
Then I swore at the newspaper when I read about the MEP accusing us of Binge flying being as bad as stabbing a person on the street. That is rich coming from an MEP- the junket of moving between Brussels & Strasbourg must fill several Bread & Circus tents with Carbon Dioxide.
Then I swore at the computer when I read about David Attenborough’s joining of the Optimum Population Trust. They have a pledge to stop at two children you can sign. For years now, we hve been told that Europe is a declining population, that the growth is down to Africans, Chavs & Muzzies who don’t know or care about contraception. Indeed population growth in Britain is down to more hopeful immigrants coming in than so-called white flight emigrants leaving trying for a better life elsewhere.
The Optimum Population Trust believes that Earth may not be able to support more than half its present numbers before the end of this century, and that the UK’s long-term sustainable population level may be lower than 30 million.
Well, if our energy supply is knackered, our economy is a busted flush and we are living in Yurts then they are probably right.
