The Shit we do

Just realised that practically no-one I know, knows about this:
Ever since I was at school the “funny bit at the end of the news” was the ecology bit  – ‘ this was what the men in sandals with beards were saying now’.
That was the early 1970s and ever since then I’ve recognised that we’re going to be in trouble but no  political will to do anything about it.
Politically, this would mean risk takers – up against the most powerful companies and lobby groups on the planet, it means almost certain political death, and there is no World Power, with enough clout to hammer it home, and the only world superpower we have – in denial.
I found myself almost shouting at the TV, “5 years to end plastic packaging???  how about NEXT MONTH???”. Similar outbursts about Diesel cars, Coal fired power stations, Fishing trawlers with 2mile long nets . . . . . It’s a massive list of real “hates” of mine.  Thought I’d type some it out to bore you guys with!
