Global WaRning.


Did you hear the news on Monday? You'll possibly say, "Probably."

Did you register what they said about the state of the world? "Most likely."

You registered it and thought about it? "Maybe."

"Stop eating meat!" The UN spokesperson said loud and clear across the world's radio waves.

"How will that help?" By diminishing the hugely complex and environmentally weighty supply chain which feeds cattle, which has rid us of vast chunks of the Amazon, to name but one environment we've all but destroyed.

"Yup, but the vegan diet is also destructive. Swathes of land have been turned into factories to supply beans, pulses, etc, and that supply-chain is just as commercial, just as gas-guzzling, just as environmentally disinterested." Certainly, but the answer is to buy local, to keep asking what is produced round the corner and how it is produced. That will force your favoured shop's buyer to select the most sustainable, environmentally concerned farmers. And your money will go local, rather than to wealthy shareholders in the world's big cities.

"That's daft! How on earth will local farmers cope with the increased demand and sensitivities needed?" I agree it is a tricky one, it'll take time, yet it can happen. Look at the future if we don't! The future has started to happen. Yesterday morning in Florida the fastest wind speeds ever, were recorded - 150 MPH! that's 240 KPH!

"Wow." You see what I mean, the planet is in your hands, my hands, our hands. We are powerful. What we decide to spend our money on makes things continue along this destructive way, or, should we truly want, along another, wiser route to a better future.

Depressed? Damned? We are lemmings, but worse. Four thousand years ago, Hindu sages warned of Kali Yug, an age when materialism will over ride every other value. Perhaps they were right, for last week
