Watching the report of the UN’s findings on BBC News earlier, I was moved to tweet the following:

I tend to agree with Greta, here:

It’s infuriating.

I was watching documentaries warning of pollution-related climate catastrophe at least as long ago as the 1980s – and nothing was done about it.

All the current hand-wringing is a pathetic attempt to con the general public into thinking that this is a new crisis, when it is nothing of the kind.

There has been plenty of time to do something constructive, but the fat cats of this world decided to make a few more billions for themselves instead – as if money could somehow save them when the environment collapses for all of us.

Now, you can bet they’re going to pretend that it’s somehow the rest of us who are responsible. Look:

Humans are transforming Earth’s natural landscapes so dramatically that as many as one million plant and animal species are now at risk of extinction, posing a dire threat to ecosystems that people all over the world depend on for their survival, a sweeping new United Nations assessment has concluded.

“Humans”?

Most of us haven’t had any say in it at all.

And yet we’re lumped in with the tiny minority who are responsible.

Despicable.

You can work out your own impact on the world by taking WWF’s environmental footprint questionnaire, here.

This Writer is pleased to announce that my environmental footprint is already lower than the 2020 target set by the UK government.

How’s yours?

Have YOU donated to my crowdfunding appeal, raising funds to fight false libel claims by TV celebrities who should know better? These court cases cost a lot of money so every penny will help ensure that wealth doesn’t beat justice.
