We are sailing -


Recommended Posts

It's an ocean racing yacht which, of course, was built without creating even a hint of a carbon footprint. Meanwhile the plane which she could potentially have travelled by will still be making the journey and producing exactly the same emissions as it would have if she had been on board. Of course here we are in the 21st century and blessed with technology like video conferencing which mean you can speak to an audience on the other side of the planet without actually leaving your house. It's called virtue signalling and is on a par with hipocrisy. I can't decide who is worse, the Blessed Greta or the adults who will be pretending to hang on to every word that issues from her uneducated mouth.

Whilst I can see that there are some changes required to our lifestyles  to preserve eco-systems, reduction in plastic use etc; the main cause imo of trashing the globe is overpopulation,  and now we have some virtue signalling from Prince Harry, saying he's going to limit his family to two kids, still won't help the taxpayer though !   But the idea, that we'll return to some kind of pre-industrial existence, with a generation hooked on the technologies produced by industry, and that millenials will be content to soak up some kind of material austerity appears far fetched.

All well and good, but what happens if they get twins or triplets next time? A cull? 🤔
