I know this does not address the huge problem of the waste we produce - or why folk live in such conditions

I Norway thye have a scheme whereby money is paid to those who collect metal cans. Being Scandinavian they have even put collecting rings around the bins so collecters don't have to rummage in the bins.

'Last month the global temperature was warmer than any previous January on record, according to the European Union’s Copernicus Climate Change Service.'

'A massive hole has been discovered in the Antarctic’s so-called doomsday glacier suggesting it may be melting even faster than scientists have long feared.

The massive Thwaites ridge would send sea levels surging by up to two feet if it dissolved completely – enough to submerge major coastal cities across the globe. Because the UK-sized chunk acts as a barrier protecting the vast West Antarctica, its melting would also destabilise the entire region by exposing it to warmer waters.'

'Antarctica has logged its hottest temperature on record, with an Argentinian research station thermometer reading 18.3C, beating the previous record by 0.8C. The reading, taken at Esperanza on the northern tip of the continent’s peninsula, beats Antarctica’s previous record of 17.5C, set in March 2015.'

Me? Mostly not worrying about spurious claims of an imminent catastrophe and enjoying the sunshine.


'This is not BXP policy but I have always found people to be happier when the sky is blue - summer or winter. So why not get our climate scientists to change their focus to solving daytime cloud dispersal and also nighttime rain to water the plants. Joy trumps Armageddon fear.' Brexir candidate Lance Foreman

"Brexit Party MEPs have voted against a European Parliament motion to declare a global climate emergency. Brian Monteith, Rupert Lowe and John Tennant were among others in the Brexit Party delegation who voted against the climate emergency motion, which was passed with 429 votes for and 225 against. Every Brexit Party MEP in attendance voted against."
