"In 2011 alone, the EU imported beef and livestock feed associated with Brazilian deforestation equivalent to more than 300 football fields per day, say the scientists."

Try searching Carbon Credits Brazillian Rainforest

You never know, but some people could have benefitted from not cutting down the trees, whilst others got paid for cutting down the same trees, and growing cattle on sustainable vegetation known as grass.

"The horrific attack upon Christians and tourists in Sri Lanka reminds us once again about the shocking persecution of our brothers and sisters in Christ around the world. Kathy discussed the BBC’s refusal to report the story properly, whatever their reason, here.
...
The thought that these families went to Easter Mass to celebrate the resurrection of Christ and never returned home is chilling and devastating. This is the persecution that Christians, outside the UK at least, must face. Pew Research confirms that Christians are the most persecuted religious group in the world.."

BBC is a disgrace. Biased? QT Panel tonight - four Remain MPs again.

Liam Fox is accused of heresy by the Guardian.
https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2019/apr/25/liam-fox-forced-clarify-climate-change-comments

He said,
“It’s important that we take climate issues seriously,” Fox said. “Whether or not individuals accept the current scientific consensus on the causes of climate change, it is sensible for everyone to use finite resources in a responsible way.”

Apparently, suggesting that people who might not accept CO2 is the main cause of climate change may still also want to use finite resources in a responsible way is UNACCEPTABLE!

Using finite resources in a responsible way is rational.
The Guardian knows that sub-humans cannot act rationally.
QED Fox is blaspheming.

Today's piece from the BBC:

"'Make EU trade with Brazil sustainable'"

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-48054443

"600 scientists are calling on the EU to make sustainability the cornerstone of its trade negotiations with Brazil.

The researchers argue in a letter to the journal Science that the country's forests and grasslands are crucial for nature and the climate.

They say measures to safeguard one of the last great forests should be built into new trade rules.

The EU is currently in negotiations with the South American trading bloc that includes Brazil.

In 2011 alone, the EU imported beef and livestock feed associated with Brazilian deforestation equivalent to more than 300 football fields per day, say the scientists."

What? The glorious EU did that? Why, we must leave immediately.....Oh no, hang on a minute, we must stay, those Brexiteers are all climate deniers and, and, and.....

Sir James Dyson has a marvellous sense of humour.

Included with a new Dyson cleaner that we have recently bought is a little booklet called “The story of Dyson”. On page 8 there is a photo of one of his dinky digital motors above the heading “Carbon free”. Here is an extract from the blurb - the punch line is in the last sentence: “The Dyson digital motor is different. Controlled by a microchip it spins up to 98,000 rpm - five-times faster than a Formula 1 car engine. Because of its speed, the digital motor is half the size and half the weight of conventional motors. With no brushes or fixed magnets, it doesn’t emit carbon either.”
