At last, the fraud unmasked. We don’t live under “surveillance capitalism”, as trendies who’ve not read Vance Packard’s THE NAKED SOCIETY (1964) suggest; but still... Anyway, how can a city ever be “smart”? And were we really that stupid?

Extreme, indeed! Cosy up to the police & detain them, because knife crime doesn’t matter. Get loved by Westminster, the Guardian, Channel 4, the European Parliament, Labour, teachers. Oh, and cut living standards by 50% — or would 25% be nearer your moderate “centre of gravity”?

I’ve never seen so many White people in one place. I’m sure would agree.

There you have it: a direct admission that the EU's internal freedom of movement relies on Fortress Europe. All those dead bodies in the Med, barbed wire in the Balkans, and concentration camps in Turkey, Greece and Libya? That's the flip side of your cherished liberal freedom.

Based on UK Energy Research Centre 2018 NB 1. No investment in UK infrastructure ! 2. Renewables won’t do much for a long time, especially in tpt, heat etc 3. Efficiency slow to rise, hits rebound effect

Yes! Tell the truth indeed! We want more power, more development, more cement, more homes, more food - we know how to do this & if you believe in less of everything - say so & we will vote!

Heat pumps still use gas. Labour trumpeted microgeneration back in... 2006 Technology progresses, yes; but there has been ZERO progress in microgeneration since then. SCALE IS BEAUTIFUL — and even nuclear fusion will come quicker than mass DIY energy

Ah, but is this African train — 1.7 million passengers in 2018 —powered by renewable energy? No? Then Kenyan families should cycle the 488km, yeah right.

Fab chart; but less UK CO2 partly due deindustrialisation after Thatch — while “Reductions in coal use has [sic] driven most of the carbon reductions in recent years” [Carbon Brief]. Now we’re outta coal, cuts will get much tougher. Government? It’s upped energy prices, for sure!

? “No net UK CO2 by 2025” means: no cars/planes, 40% less power, 50% less power capacity and 85% less heat — no more gas cooking/heating; end of most jobs in iron, steel, chemicals, oil, food & drink, cement, pulp & paper, glass. So thoughtful!

Old Bazza Mackenzie cartoon in PRIVATE EYE, circa 1968: “As only a minor Reverend, I’d like to marry you two — but I haven’t got a very big stipend!” Groom’s reply: “Cor! These flamin’ fighter pilots are all the same!” There, I said it. Donald McGill will be next for the censor

'One foot of Louisiana is lost every 45 minutes to rising sea levels’. Er, since the 1930s – BEFORE global warming – Louisiana has lost 2000sqmi of land. Why? Poor engineering, not climate change

Now we’re talking, fab 2 reach across echochambers. The elite indeed hypocritical on CO2 — 1500 private jets at Davos! But you’d not ban all transatlantic air travel (boats would be next), insist on videoconferencing instead, etc. Yes, CO2 is a problem, but India still needs coal

Agreed! But the whole ruling class is not just with CO2, but now with plastics as well. And tech solutions are an also-ran as far as UK nuclear power and even renewables R&D are concerned – bourgeois etiquette aimed at cutting the plebs’ consumption is the Green preference

Wow... just watched talk about climate change on sky news. Absolutely shocking. He compared the CO2 in our exhale to carbon emissions from man made sources.... How are those who appear to be educated so misinformed and, if I’m honest, fucking stupid?
