Re: Extinction Rebellion

I agree Mike that this hour programme did start to address the problem. But, as I said previously a whole series of programmes is needed to explore exactly what is contributing to climate change all around the world and identify the major causes. What concerns me is that the hand wringers in Britai...

Re: Extinction Rebellion

How much less fossil fuels? What will the impact of that be? How many more trees and where should they go? Everyone in the third world wants a car. Yes, those actions are clear but who is going to be affected and by how much. I was an Engineer vague statements are meaningless you have to put some n...

Re: Cycle Paths

Can anyone tell me, why cycling uk is not promoting the compulsory use of cycle paths? I’m a cyclist and a driver and have just seen the new laws regarding close passing of cyclists. There is nothing more irritating than cyclists on a narrow road when there is a cycle path next to it. I believe the...

Re: Extinction Rebellion

Disappointing programme, as usual lots of evidence that Climate Change is happening but no clue as to what should change and by how much? Until people know what must change nothing more than is happening now will happen. Fisticuffs at Heathrow tomorrow... Al If one judges by the actions of politici...

Re: Extinction Rebellion

Labrat and Metal seem to have reached the second stage of denialism. "Alright, its happening, but it won't be too bad." Writing as a member of the human race I find that I am not much cheered by an assurance that the planet will survive, even if Climate Change destroys our present living ...

Re: Off road history.

Years ago I crossed Nant Rhyd Wylim (Wayfarer's Pass) twice in one day on my Galaxy. I reached the road end and found I had lost my tool roll, so I turned round and retraced my tyre tracks. I didn't find the tools.

Re: Extinction Rebellion

Makes you wonder if the planet stands any chance at all when some people get in such a stew because they are inconvenienced a bit. Wonder how inconvenienced they or their offspring will feel as the impacts progress e.g. few months ago I visited a glacier in rapid retreat where the metal content in ...

Re: Single Use Plastics

A thing that always annoys me is that, even if you are trying to be responsible, it is not easy to know which type of plastic is one which your council recycles. The council's guide is not unambiguous. Perhaps producers of the stuff should be obliged to label it, and councils to have a consistent po...

Re: Extinction Rebellion

As I posted up threa,do protesters have all walk there and live in a tent off the land to qualify to protest? As Monbiot put it. Unless the protestor lives in a barrel, off rain water and stale bread they are clearly a hypocrite who need not be listened to. Of course, if they do live thus, they are...

Re: The irony of a diverted commute.

I would have been pleased to find that I could have joined the protest on my ride home. Also, its fairly obvious that the protestors would allow cyclists through. If not, I would have been confident that I could infiltrate my way through. I understand the protest is continuing, so tomorrow you know...
