Yep, 3rd July 2023 in Cornwall, our central heating kicked inYou could've started this thread later, as I've just put another log in our woodburner
I disagree. The obvious answer now is probably to stop pretending we can prevent climate change. Instead, my advise would be to get what you can from life now because hell is coming. No question.the obvious answer is to have the emergency stop, end all use of fossil fuels. this will bring about close down of most the economy, but if thats necessary then thats what's needed. could go with high carbon taxes, just allow the middle classes and rich to carry on, while making cost of living crisis look mundane. or we could go the carbon capture route, not seeming to be taken that seriously. everything else is just pretending to deal with the issue.
Just a shame we can’t swim in our rivers and sea for water companies emptying sewage into them. Still, as long as the shareholders get their gross dividends and can thereby afford to go to and enjoy Maldives etc where the water quality is better (but add further pollution by flying, see the vicious cycle we’re in here?!)Look to book more holidays in the UK as it is getting hotter over here now and will save on the flights.
Realistic solutions, please! There are billions of people who believe they should have more than the next person even if they don’t currently have.We could stop measuring a nation's success in % economic growth, after all, its economic growth that is the cause of all this turmoil.
Zero political will to do anything - and climate activists are portrayed as the bad guys. Awesome.
