Global scientists have once again released a report stating that we are destroying the planet.
In fact we are merely rendering it uninhabitable for our species. The planet will simply shrug us off as a temporary parasite.
But, one wonders, what is the point?
On a personal level, nobody to my knowledge has yet come up with an affordable electric car that can reasonably tow a caravan or a horse trailer over any reasonable distance.
Even if they did, what is the comparative climate effect and cost of generating and delivering the electricity, and providing the charging points nationwide?
On a global level, until the USA acknowledges the problem and Russia, China and India, along with a host of smaller countries, achieve their ambition of catching up with “the West’s” power consumption levels, we are unlikely to make any local effect.
Maybe, having screwed the planet beyond our current abilities, we must either evolve to cope or die out as a species. We won’t be the first to be replaced, even on this planet.
I realise that we are merely the tenants of our environment, and custodians for future generations. So the best we can hope to do is to limit the impact of the previous 2000 or so generations who had no idea what they were doing.
