Of the most terrifying, relentless and seemingly intractable man-made problem faced by the world today, German educational design studio Kurzgesagt sez:

We have known for decades that rapid Climate Change is being caused by the release of Greenhouse Gases. But instead of reducing them, in 2019 the world was emitting 50% more CO2 than in the year 2000. And emissions are still rising. Why is that? Why is it  so hard to just stop emitting these gases?

      Over the past 30 years I have worked in the areas always predicted to be hit hardest by this.
      There is plenty of evidence. Just because you do not want to read the reports, the findings, even the newspapers does not mean there is no evidence.

      First place to start might be here. Don’t just stop at the front page.

      Hi Dav.
      You know this was not aimed at you, but I see the ‘Sheet has remove the initial post. No worries.

      For those of you who might be interested, I do recommend the sites I posted for information.

    I know the singer I am about to mention does not exactly have a fan following here, or indeed other places. But I ask a hearing on this one (no, it is not ABBA)

    Listening to a record I sort of inherited recently, I came again across this song. Written years ago, it reflects the chance we have not to destroy what we have. Over the years I have enjoyed many songs on the matters of protecting the earth (and there are more than many think), so much I reckon you could put together a whole radio show with great tunes on the subject. Not all are doom and gloom, and several charted probably because people may not have noticed the message.

    Always remember the real doom-mongers are the people who insist that we need to keep pumping out gases that are degrading the habitability of the planet because they need to make more money.

    A lot of income for Governments is based around taxes on products that result from the use of fossil fuels in their manufacture.

    How much more uptake would there be on electric cars for instance, if they were in the same price bracket as diesel / petrol vehicles.
    What would that uptake entail as regards energy needs, and how would that energy be produced?

    The video was basically informative for anyone with a passing interest. The points made though do need to be drilled down into.
