Cancun, Mexico and they are at it again, world powers prancing around and spouting off about climate change - not so much futile as grossly boring.
Of course, it's the West that has to put it's own house in order and the recommendation has come that Great Britain should reduce its carbon emissions by 60% over the next 20 years. 60% are they stark staring bonkers? That means we will all be driving electric Robin Reliants and using recycled copies of The Tablet to heat our houses (OK, so it's not all bad).]
But, really. Have these world powers never visited India, China, Taiwan, Indonesia, Brazil (the list is as boring as the conference 'emissions'). All of the aforesaid countries have massive pollution problems and, quite frankly my dear, they don't give a damn!
|Not the River Thames, Avon or Dee but the Gomti River, India|
And they are worried about reducing clean old GB to an emissions target of 60%.
I suppose the only good side is that it will provide our beloved Bishops with a good topic for their pastoral letters for years to come.
