    Theresa May’s Legacy Idea

    So, Theresa May’s ‘legacy’ idea is to have the U.K. ‘carbon net zero’ by 2050. Brilliant! No, really. What an amazing idea. The airwaves and MSM have been full of various pundits saying what an absolutely stunning idea it is. Let’s dismantle the infrastructure of our country, force everyone to drive electric cars, remove all gas boilers for something either electrically powered or far more expensive. Let’s cover fields in solar panels instead of using them for agriculture and build thousands of wind turbines.

    Awesome. She is obviously an incredibly intelligent woman. One small thought. What about all the other countries?

    China’s current CO2 output is around 27% of the world’s total. India’s is

    F**king IPad closed down before I finished!

    India produces 5.8 %, Russia 4.79%, Japan 3.8%, Germany 2.23% etc etc. Where do we stand? We produce a whopping 1.1%. That’s it.

    Even if we completely decarbonise the whole country it will mean jack s**t. All it will do is screw our industries up completely and cost billions of pounds.

    Awesome Mrs May, truly awesome.

    I'll say this for nowt - if I make chilli as powerful as the one I cooked last night then this nation is going to have a major CO2 issue well before 2050.....and as for sulphur dioxide.......

    Are we not attacking this from the wrong direction? Why not put money and thinking into harnessing all this lovely CO2?

    Or plant a gazillion trees and shrubbery's to eat it all up?

    I call bull****! You’re a bogbot. Bogbots don’t eat Chili therefore you are charged with impersonation of a human. The sentence is 3 days with Theresa May as her personal tampon.

    Good call. Also, why not scrap HS2 and all other ‘legacy’ projects that help only a tiny minority and put that money into developing nuclear power?

    I’m confused. Is that a good or a bad thing?

    For the Goat - its a very good thing!

    So, you have just over 30 years to get rid of your car, stop flying overseas on foreign holidays, dismantle your hot water boiler and central heating, and erect a monstrous wind turbine in your back yard so you can give your TV enough juice to allow you to watch "Corrie"......

    You up for it?

    No need. My bunker is fully equipped and ready for the coming zombie holocaust. What exactly is this “Corrie” you speak of?
