I was hoping she’d stand up and say ‘sod the lot of you, if you think you can do any better, be my guest, I’m off’. At which point she storms off. I bet there isn’t anyone, particularly JC, who’d have stuck it as long as she has.

Oh I don't know. I think there is a very real danger that if Jeremy did ever get into No. 10 we would never get him out again. Just look at Russian, Chinese and North Korean leaders and their 'democratic elections'.

There again, you would need to be a madman to want the top job right now. Any takers?

As has been said before, anyone who wants it should inevitably be excluded because they're demonstrably mad or criminal or both.

Re: How are we going to save the planet?

I was interested to read this morning that the concrete industry creates more CO2 then aviation fuel.

This BBC report is an interesting read.

The massive CO2 emitter you may not know about

But a heck of a lot of that is in constructing airport runways! Two birds perhaps?

And roads too. Three birds perhaps?

Dare I mention that the bases for wind turbine towers also use quite a lot of concrete, as do hydro-electric dams.

Re: How are we going to save the planet?

Whichever way you look at it, we're doomed, let's face it. The planet will survive and, like Dr Who, regenerate, but I fear we are close to next great extinction. If any of humankind survives I hope it learns from all this that endless economic and population growth cannot be sustained.

I truly think we’re too stupid to learn that sensible lesson I’m afraid.

Re: How are we going to save the planet?

Is Global Warning a Pseudoscience?

I came across this video done some time ago. The Nobel Laureate made some very valid points back then and they are still true now.

He's not a climate scientist and yet purports to have intimate knowledge of climate science, he is in fact a climate pseudoscientist much loved by the American right. Apart from that he's great

Good try. He is a Nobel Laureate in Physics and has done real science.

No, he is a physicist who understands how to do real science. If you watched the video he starts by saying he was invited to speak. The scientific method has been corrupted by the "global warming" oops now renamed "Climate change" crowd.
