Cop 26

Hope the countries involved actually do something and not just talk about how they're going to help save this planet.

I fear that we're going to be let down by China and India imo. 🙁

Those places are where we buy our stuff from, just boycott it all.
If we all make a stand we can make a difference but I doubt it because we all want cheap stuff.

Like I've said before...bits of paper and metal round coins dictate our lives. Thats what will ultimately kill off life on this planet.

The thing is we all have choices to make and we should be thinking of the future.

Nuclear is the simplest solution but that is far too dangerous so we should go to solar or wind power, just my two penneth worth.

Just a coincidence that China is one of the worst polluters.
It's ok though, the rest of us will carry the weight of reducing carbon while they crack on abusing the planet

Once the planet shakes us off, it'll take a while but it'll reverse the damage we've done.
Or we can avoid being killed off by starting to do the right thing now, regardless of the cost
