Finishing the old, starting the new
According to a UK government think tank, civilization has just fifteen years left before it implodes, this conclusion was partly drawn from a detailed report from NASA. The NASA report states that the rich will survive, the rest of us don't count, or words to that effect. This comes as no surprise to us, after all what can you do when governments give grants for farmers to build bio digesters to produce gas to make electricity, this would be fine if the digesters were using waste products from animals and the millions of tons of food waste that people chuck away each year, but these farmers are also growing crops, maize potatoes and beets to feed these digesters. This is not just happening in far away countries, where rain forests are being destroyed to grow palms for palm oil and sugar canes for the same reason, this is happening in the UK where over 50% of the food consumed is imported ( using yet more fossil fuels) Total madness.
