Well said k-l. You're very patient. I couldn't be bothered myself, trying to move someone a long way from their entrenched position.

In Australia new houses must have a 3000 litre tank capturing rainfall That's a great idea and one that will probably have to implemented around the world as humans carry on damaging the climate.

Perhaps we can make some guesses what the future will look like for the average UK citizen. […] People will realize that it's pointless trying to predict the future and give up.

I think it makes sense for the UK to be aware of the viability of its shale gas resources before they abandon the possibility of their future extraction. Although the amount of UK energy supplied by renewables is rising (11% of total energy demand), and I think that is a good thing, the country may...
