One major climate change solution is to ban cars from cities.
Active travel should be encouraged so should all trips below 5 mile destination be banned?

With minor exceptions of course

What're we voting for? The banning of car use for trips less than 5 miles?

No idea what the vote is for


Anyway - posted this on another thread recently seems worth putting it here as well

Anyway - I can't remember the exact details - but there was a documentary on the TV recently
a proper channel like BBC or Channle 4 or Sky - not something didgy

anyway - 2 well known chefs were on it including hugh fenley whatsit and - another one and they were part of a campaign to raise awareness and promote local produce and recuding polution and all that

Thay discovered that a proper full blone full researched report had been produced for the government by a proper government body made up of experts
It details, specifically and with time frames, exactly how this country (UK) can transition to Net Zero over a fairly short time.
The government know about this
It is also fully costed and shows - very clearly and without any contentious bits - that overall it would cost the country much less than things like drilling for more oil and digging more coal - and all that

it is possible and the plan exists

the government is totally ignoring it
in fact they are doing the exact opposite and making the plan more difficult to achieve


They ended up looking at the money flowing into the Tory party and gues who a lot of it comes from
and guess which type of company gives funds (all declared obviously (probably) ) "donates" to individual leading Tory politicians


Yup - the Oil companies


anyway - sorry for waffleing about it
just found the link - it was Channel 4

It'll all be sorted out at COP28 as we have a very good set of people going

The King, Sunak and Cameron are all going

on separate private jets

Not The King I can understand - and I bet he fits other people on whatever plane he uses
but apparently Sunak and Cameron are travelling on a private jet each - but the junior ministers are flying commercial


apart from the obvious
it worries me that they don;t even seem to think of how this looks!

I mean - do they actually have a special department working out how to give easy wins to Starmer???

Guess the question was a bit too demanding for some of our ccommentatoes.
'Active travel should be encouraged so should all trips below 5 mile destination be banned?'

I had best get back to watching some Play School in order to improve my phrasing.

:biggrin:
I shouldn't laugh, but Hugh was very much the only chef on the programme! x

Meanwhile, Kevin McCloud did his bit; but did have me shouting at the telly. He's had 20 years on prime-time TV, a gold-plated platform to talk about this stuff. He fronts a fecking BUILDING programme - one that specialises in innovative builds!!!!!

And now he's saying not enough is being done to get new homes insulated etc AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARGH!

<and breathe ....>
Otherwise, a good watch 👍

So only 3 of us people have an opinion.

We are truly farked.

Many of us have many opinions on what could and should be done.
And give it when it seems appropriate.
Very often carefully researched, and trialled as much as is possible in RW circs..

Thousands, have been putting forwards, and even implementing such ideas for decades, with varying degrees of success.

But it would seem that the vast majority of people only take an interest if it's some guy off of a telly prog, that's talking about it.

Not from people actually working in the field all this time.
That combined with the vested interest of those who don't really want to see radical change means that progress is woefully slow.

Oh well such is the way of the world, it would seem.

The 'sense of belonging' that activates the human race is the most wondrously strange thing.
Though more often than not, it becomes a very ugly thing.

Has it occurred to you that maybe your poll is just a bit ?

Translates very bad. Who gives a shit
Almost no one. We are simply creates of (bad) habit.
What did you want? Some ultra processed poll.

Go do one yourself.
