Greenpeace expert speaks out



This lovely Greenpeace video dates from 2007.

Climate change is changing our world. Within the lifetimes of children being born today, it may challenge our survival as a species. 

The Earth is hotter than it has been for at least one thousand years. By the end of this century, if current trends continue, the temperature will likely climb higher than it's been at any time in the past two million years. The consequences of this drastic rise, caused by burning fossil fuels, are likely to be catastrophic: mass extinctions, droughts, hundreds of millions of refugees ...


 A comical litany of absurdities, but perhaps the most delicious thing of all is that this kid hasn't actually seen any global warming.

I wonder what the dear little mite thinks of it now?

Interesting demeanour. I can't work out whether the stroppy little androgyne actually believes it, or is a stage-school graduate being paid to do an advert.
If it is genuine, I fear for them. Them's issues, them is...

Sam - maybe he ended up in Murmansk.

Pathetic twitterati stuff! They all moan when they don't understand things.

End of.

HE HASN'T SEEN ANY!!!!!

I'm shocked, I tell you, shocked, after all, it's his right, innit?!

Michael - which is quite a range of things to have a go at!

David - maybe he'll see some cooling as a consolation prize.

Ever since he got hit by an asteroid he is not so sure. But he may make up his mind after his coming holiday at Yellowstone.

Demetrius - although he may not have long to make up his mind as his hood fills up with ash.
