  • Climate Change - can you belive this?

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-eur...avJUJRbQ1b5BN8

    The bit that alarms me most is Pompeo suggesting that the melting of the Artic ice is a good thing because it will open up new trade rotes for shipping!

      Manahattan, Mar-a-Largo etc would all go underwater.

      I hope he has flood insurance cover.

        I think a remark was also made about the melting of the Arctic Ice would 'also make it easier for the exploration and harvesting of mineral resources in the area'.

        Big Money overides all.

          Have these people been living under a stone for the past thirty years?

          Is making money and plundering every last vestige of the earth's resources before they retire the only thing that matters to them?

            The whole US administration is rotten to the core. Corrupt, arrogant, ignorant, vindictive, racist, money-grabbing. They lack any vision for humanity or the citizens of their own country. All that matters is narrow political favour and filling their pockets. I hope the US electorate come to realise the peril we're all in because of them in time for the 2020 elections.

              I have to agree with you on that Paul; I just wish I could believe the American opposition was better.

              Unfortunately corruption, arrogance, ignorance, vindictiveness, racism, money-grabbing and environmental vandalism seem to be a way of life for far too many Americans. Worse still, there are people in this country who worship them for it.

                I'm coming to the view that it's time for the rest of the world to impose severe economic sanctions on America until they start to act more responsibly.

                    Why not? The Americans are very fond of imposing punitive sanctions on any regime they don't like.

                        Would we leave on good terms with a customs union? And what about British tax exiles living in the USA? Would there be freedom of movement for them?

                          I'm not sure it's confined to Americans ...

                            With all this talk about corruption, arrogance, ignorance, vindictiveness, racism, money-grabbing and environmental vandalism etc., ect., in other countries, perhaps we should concentrate to get our own house in order before sorting all the others.
                            It's not what inspires us that is important, it's where the journey takes us.

                              Which 'house' were you thinking of Wally? The one with green leather seats or red leather seats?
