    Are you fit & well mate ? I notice there has been a fair bit of earth crust activity in your region and haven't noticed you posting for a good few days.

    Only kidding but I do like the warmer weather

    Read somewhere if we plant a billion trees it could be a huge step in the right direction.

    The planet will survive, as it did last time when half the species on earth were wiped out including the dinasaurs. The force of regeneration seems to be programmed to protect the planet. If humans have to be wiped out, so be it. A new era will likely come, and possibly different species will take over and evolve, and hopefully will treat the planet better than we have. Ancient civilisations recognised that humans had to work with nature, and not against it. We seem to have ignored that, to our detriment.

    The idea that a species could come to dominate the planet like we have and develop advanced technologies as we have without being as aggressive and/or wasteful as we have been to get here is doubtful. I personally think it's all bound up in the Fermi Paradox with civilisations being somewhat self erasing once they reach a certain level. I honestly think that humans will survive the current environmental catastrophe but in much lower numbers and with a bloody nose. That almost knockout whack in Humankind's collective grid will hopefully cause the massive reassessment necessary to change course. If it can be done without an enormous technological rewind (a back to square one job) it will possibly set us up for millennia. I've still got the nagging feeling that we're the baddies though. :lol:

    My point was you can still get them, bit odd what with the environment and what not or doesn’t it apply to those well off who can still spend megabucks on non low emissions big engined vehicles?

    Theres a lot of differing views out there that this electric cars are worse for the environment. Where does the electricity come from, the minerals to make the batteries, how many times around the world to get the raw materials changed to batteries then delivered to the car factories.

    The power generation thing is just a question of economics and scale, long term it is more efficient to build cleaner power stations, wind turbines or solar power plants. The materials you would need to manufacture the battery packs etc. for every new car constructed on Earth however, are unimaginable. :lol:

    Seems as long as there are zero emissions from the cars governments don't give a shit about any of that.

    Doesent apply to millionaires.
     
  18. Local air pollution will be improved which is what local politicians will be committed to. As for the global impact it will be 'we only produce 1%, what about USA, China...'

    UK 'not acting fast enough' on climate change

    It certainly is.

    When the sun runs out of its power source it will expand into a red giant and engulf planet Earth, vapourising it.
