    When will the leaders of countries learn. The £$¥€ comes first apparently !!!? But not the envoirinmement.
    @Mani might be interested in this article, as I know he is very concerned about the environment in the UK.
    But we should all be interested IMO.

    @Acerholic The double standards! They will complain about Brazil felling the rain forest but have no qualms about doing the exact same thing in the UK - not that there are many trees left in the UK.

    We are living in different times now, attitudes have to change, these small losses all add up.......ironically, "progress" will be the end for us............

    @Mani, you are Soooooo right Mani. It is this word called 'growth'. Why ???
    I thought you would find the article interesting, but annoying as well.

    Things will have to change, or the planet will make the change for us and it probably won't be very nice.
