    Why does she trigger one demographic so much?

    Because they know she's right, so they have to play the man and not the ball.
    If world leaders just agreed to do the opposite of what Diego thinks about any issue, then they'd fix everything.

    no we aren't, we're giving it lip service because;
    a) there's no money in it, and
    b)no one wants the inconvenience of doing without what they'll have to sacrifice.

    Not that it matters, we'll have a big kick-off sooner or later and someone will get the big toys out, it's inevitable.

    Oh, right.

    Maybe you should explain to people what needs to be done and how to achieve it straight away, it could help us all out.

    We are going to be burying it in Cumbria. Stick it in granites and you wont notice it with the natural radioactivity of them.

    A lad I know down here who's even more of a rock geek than me has got a geiger counter. He was showing me some 'hot' rocks that are in people's front walls, gateposts etc. Crazy radioactive granite that's just sitting there in towns and villages down here.

    Can’t be done, unlike Canada there are cracks that could allow contamination.

    That’s why I never screw my Mrs on the granite kitchen tops.

    Sofas and armchairs have got better angles anyway imo.

    There's a group down here called The Carbis bay crew. They are a bunch of reprobates who like climbing down big holes and exploring what's down there. They always take a geiger counter down with them and some of the 'hot' spots down here are truly off the scale.

    Makes me wonder what's in my own house as the walls are 3ft thick granite blocks

    Remember going to Camborne School of Mines when I was at university. They were fracking the granites, pumping water down and getting hot water back to power turbines. All that heat is being generated by natural radioactivity in the rock.

    The Jubilee pool in PZ has just opened new geothermal heated outdoor pool. I popped down there in the summer. It's ****ing lovely. <ok>

    Different kind of tech I know, but one that hopefully will be used more and more to generate heat in the future instead of burning fossil fuels.

    I think when you have people panic buying fuel, it tells you something is seriously wrong with the infrastructure of this country and that don't bode well for a future green economy.

    Over decades we have moved people from using their legs, into their cars, Town Centres have gone, and out of town shopping centres are now the norm. Even working places have become centralised out of towns. All these locations require the use of a car. One person, one car but millions of the fookers. Even the schools are clogged up with cars at drop off and collection times.

    We've moved from local shops to supermarkets, that supply all our weekly needs, trouble is again the freight all comes from central locations. The CO2 recent problems have highlighted the problems of relying on main hubs, it also highlights how we have done away with local markets and farmers with produce being fresh on the day, packaged in a way that keeps it longer, but also creating more than we need and excessive waste.

    People have proven with bog roll and fuel, they have absolutely no intentions of changing their ways, well at least not for another decade, when new rules start coming in. Expect the price of fuel over the next decade to rocket, as the governments and environmentalists will force you stubborn bastards out of your petrol/diesel cars and excuses of I'm panic buying because they are. While our own selfishness has left ambulance drivers grounded.

    It shouldn't go unnoticed that producers haven't really helped either, by wrapping everything we buy in plastic, especially stuff like fresh fruit and veg, generally I'm suspicious that this is to make you buy more than you actually need, afterall, it saves the farmer and retailer having to get rid of the waste of having produced too much.

    In short, we're fooked, and I'm not convinced you mentalists are going to change your ways. We all pretend to be green, but in reality the rules appear to suggest differently, it's everyone for themself.

    I was sitting on a bus a few years ago, there were 2 girls sitting in front talking about the environment and one of them said "I'm not giving up my hair straighteners". I think that's when I finally accepted what I'd already known for years, we're ****ed. We could save the world, but it'll be costly and inconvenient, and no one will accept that.

    I remember her in Heidi. She didn't have any parents, just a grandad. He bitched about her parents too. Think it was Diego.
