I like comments like 'we need to be more like Denmark or Sweden'.
If you travel to the middle east or parts of Asia and many other places around the world, do you really think they give a flying fuck about climate change?
Yet all of us retards are separating out recycling and driving economical cars, considering our carbon footprint, while the majority of the world outside of Europe doesn't care!
Ah I love this argument. I won't do anything because every single person in the planet isn't yet on this.
Its true though, when I first travelled to the middle east and Asia and saw everyone driving V8s and not giving a fuck about pollution / recycling , I was definitely enlightened.
I thought everyone gave a fuck. They certainly do not, and I can't see them changing anytime soon. Why should we be taxed and cajoled by our governments in the name of going green and climate change.
I do thing climate change is happening due to industrialisation, it seems pretty obvious with the amount of shit we chuck into the atmosphere on a daily basis, but I don't see why we should be penalised for it when many others don't pull their weight.
It will only work if it's a concerted effort, not just Europe.
