The real issue concerning the Planet ,Is the contamination of water worldwide. Pollutants entering the water table every day. Pestitides and Nuclear waste being dumped at sea . The curse of Plastics, and yet not one politician making a stand on these issues. Islands of Plastic the size of Ireland floating in the Pacific ,But not a word from the UN , We are killing our Planet ,yet the Greenies are silent . The Religious are silent , Everyone is silent , The contamination is like a virus spreading silently .

It's even worse than that. Some are the size of Texas apparently.

But tackling those very real issues you mention would mean corporations would have to pay up and greatly change their ways.
Wheras the whole CO2 scam creates new markets and profits for them, since we all have to buy new cars and new stuff
and meanwhile these corporates have to change fuck all about their current polluting production processes.

Also it allows governments to slap on a bunch of new "carbon" taxes on the serfs and
create new authoritarian powers for themselves.

David Attenborough is on TV every fucking time you switch it on
but did you ever wonder what happened to well known TV personality,
botanist, environmentalist, university lecturer and OBE David Bellamy?
Have a watch.

Bellamy became persona non grata, because of his "outspoken" views.

Save the planet and die alone:

The greens now want us to get rid of our pets to save the planet

That's accelerationism to an extreme, if the childless can't be allowed their pets, expect a horde of wine aunt's coming for the corpse of those enacting such a policy.

It will be interesting to see if the new Green TDs take their unvouched 'turning up money'. TDs sign a form at the end of the year o certify they spent their turning up money, which is paid to them monthly, exclusively on travel. Ryan and Martin both take the full allowance, 9k in Dublin - how could you spend that money if you use your bike to get to work?

Eoin O'Broin and Jinm O'callaghan do not take their turning up money at all but don't make political capital out of it. I have actually seen J O'C on a bike as he is in my constituency.
