environment & politics

A cool promotion, but day by day, I’m starting to think it’s all too late. Climate change is having increasingly powerful impacts (all of which were forecast). In the UK, we have a government saying this sort of thing about Wind Farm subsidies (conveniently forgetting that oil and nuclear all receive eye-watering amounts of tax payers’ money), whilst giving tax breaks to shale gas, one of the most environmentally damaging processes I can think of both in the short and long term.

Science is being ignored – the young and the poor are being ignored – while rich white men cling on to their crumbling ideologies and bend reality to suit their soundbites.

Time to head to the Dark Mountain?
