"Extinction Rebellion has threatened to shut down Heathrow Airport for 10 days using drones if the Government does not cancel a planned expansion"

Apparently they want to hold the country to ransom to get there own way

They know it is illegal. If they get arrested and charged they only have themselves to blame, but it is up to them.

Climate news update

Rory Stewart pledged to double foreign aid spending on climate change over the next five years, up from £1.1 billion per year.

It appears we continue to do our bit to save the planet

So the planet is being damaged and we are told to eat less meat/dairy walk or use a bike to get about  , lol. I notice the key thing none of these protesters mention is how about we stop producing on the current level, overpopulation by mankind will eventually kill the planet or get to a point where we can't live off the planet.
My turning into a vegan or even everyone in the UK will not help when countries with far bigger populations continue to become weternised such as India.

According to an article in the Guardian newspaper this morning, it is predicted that most of the meat people will eat in 2040 will not be from slaughtered animals. It goes on to state that 60% of meat will be grown in vats or by plant based products that will look and taste like meat.

The drivers behind the “new meat” are environmentally and animal welfare concerns. The article is based on a report by AT Kearny and no it’s not 1st April before anyone asks.

So, we will be eating vegan meat, how does that work?

About time. I am an old codger, and felt/feel this is stupid.
Edit..... The £10 at Christmas must cost more to administer than benefits people.
