I joined in 1976 and it had evolved from when it started back in 1964. I often wonder what it would been like if it was still on today ❤️

We're watching on BBC1 right now, and it's brilliant hearing the words, "The evidence is now unequivocal" that human activity, in particular, fossil fuels, are the cause of global warming. No ifs, no buts.

For religious people that always had a scientific background either promoted at home, academic and professional life, great. Some of us had the bible as the definitive text on such matters. We should work together to promote science against such fundamentalism.
