The trouble about pollution from fossil fuels that they took millions of years for nature to produce them and about 5 minutes for us lot to use them up.---

Got to be a bit of imbalance there somewhere. --Even Nature with these odd fires has never done that so fast.--

Just to give you a perspective, how much fossil fuel do you think leaches out naturally from the earths surface including the seabed in a year ?

Also what about all the Volcanoes? Apparently there are 20 erupting at any single time around the world .

Most vehicle emissions are quite clean, there was a report a few years ago that in some cities what comes out of the exhaust of most modern cars is cleaner than goes in the air cleaner.

The problem is there are to many of us all polluting a bit, 7 billion little bits adds up to a lot.

Well according to the apocalyptic foresayers, we have between 18 months and 2 years before we are all going to DIE if we don’t stop driving our cars and flying, heating our homes and generating electric, along with anything else you can think of.Perhaps if all these doom mongers lose their jobs and freeze to death , and can not get to the shops for food that won’t be there because lorries can not get into deliver anything perhaps they might realise that they were suffering from a bad case of Hysteria.

I wonder if that means the “apocalypse foresayers “ will stop breading as the end of the world is approaching ?

The world is full of worriers, a good friend of mine made a lot of money at the millennium. He is in IT and was paid a lot of money by the government to be on standby when the clocks changed. He had to do nothing apart from think how he was going to spend all the money.

In a 100 years or so there will be no more oil or no more that is economical to extract. What will happen then? Will we all go back to horse and carts and sail ships? I don't think so, Aircraft will have a new form of propulsion, electricity generation will be on a scale we now think impossible from natural resources and by methods we cant even imagine at the moment.

I think we will have bigger problems, with 11 billion mouths to feed worldwide and who knows what the Arabs are going to be up to with no more Oil revenue? I am glad I wont be here.

Troubles is, it is clearly written in the user manuals of various cults, religions and sky fairy believers to out-breed other religious, sky fairy believers and other cults.

So strong are the beliefs of those who take their user manual instructions as gospel then only Mother Nature, in all her various good and bad forms WILL have the final say.

You do not need to be a Darwin or even a Sir David A. to understand that no species ever is exempt from extinction. A huge number of that one dominant species do believe they are exempt from that possibility. Those of that mindset will be the undoing for the rest of the whole, particularly if they get their hands on some bombs. Big hot bombs to speed up the process. It could simply be a matter of time.

Yet far too many within certain "We know best" classes both here in the UK and elsewhere form long queues to take every opportunity to bad mouth those that do take the threats seriously. They clueless dream seeing those World Leaders who are concerned about that possibility and take measures to monitor those who would harm the rest of us as the problem.

The UK media have an ever expanding pool of such "We know better than you Plebs" dreamer experts to pull out and mislead on just about every topic. FAKE NEWS it is called and correctly so. I am encouraged to see much evidence within recent so called "Peoples Votes" that "The Plebs" see things differently and so vote the way they do and did much to the chagrin of the "We know best" class shower. A delight for the "many" rather than their "few" to see their "Smacked Bum" faces soon after the Polls closed and the results started to come in on more than one occasion recently.

The current crop of Climate Change clowns are merely the latest in a long list of cults predicting the "end of the World". I read a book about these some years ago and they included the collapse of the UK when we ran out of coal in the 1850s, the collapse of the US when the oil ran out of oil then predicted to 1919 and we would all starve in the 1960s as the world would be unable to feed the world population. More recently we had predictions of doom with the oil starting to run out at the start of the new Millennium!

In the 90s the "Global Warming" cult started they were predicting we would have all gone to Hell in a handcart well before the 2020 and indeed that idiot American VP suggested no ice sheet at the North Pole by 2010. Why do the stupid masses still believe this nonsense? Perhaps because they are stupid!

Clearly we are doing a lot wrong by filling the seas with plastic, laying waste to the Amazon and still driving diesels.....

Yeah but, yeah but, these Meejah ex-spurts are all highly paid and regarded professionals and obviously know what they're on about.

Just like Clarkson putting the negative boot into UK Automotive product at every opportunity whilst biggin' up alien automotive product particularly if it bears a Three-Pointed-Star. Ably assisted by his little rodent "Hamster" with his squeaky loud outbursts on BBS's Top Gear like this.
