IS JEZ CLARKSON OUT OF TOUCH - He is entitled to his own view of course, as is President Donald Trump, but we wonder if his TV shows, most of which are based on burning fossil fuels, is shaping his outlook on the future of the planet. One thing is for sure. If we were all running around tearing it up in the gas guzzlers Jeremy and his team have been for the last 10 plus years, we doubt if there would much future for our children - given that we are may already have reached a point on non-recovery.
THE SUN 5 DECEMBER 2019
It comes after the Sun columnist warned "every child in the western world is now absolutely terrified" over
climate change since Greta started campaigning.
HOW MUCH IS THE EARTH HEATING UP - As of early 2017, the Earth had warmed by roughly 2 degrees Fahrenheit (more than 1 degree Celsius) since 1880, when records began at a global scale. The number may sound low, but as an average over the surface of an entire planet, it is actually high, which explains why much of the world’s land ice is starting to melt and the oceans are rising at an accelerating pace. If greenhouse gas emissions continue unchecked, scientists say, the global warming could ultimately exceed 8 degrees Fahrenheit, which would undermine the planet’s capacity to support a large human population.
It's all very well someone like Jeremy saying go back to school, but by the time children at school are able to make a difference it will be too late.
Hence, we cannot blame the children of today, for doing what they can right now, and that is making a visible stand, appealing to the morals of those in power who may have gone off the rails as they sell our heritage for profit.
