I think Alan Morris missed the point of my posting so I will spell
it out. I believe that the International fossil fuel industry does
its level best to nobble any potential replacement by the placement
of agent provocateurs in many conservation movements and blind
funding of many organisations. How many of these organisations can
say for certainty where all their funding truly comes from?
It is a dirty world out there Alan and there many billions of dollars
of investments in the fossil and nuclear fuel industries at stake.
I believe that it is time those of us who are conservation minded get
behind the move for alternative energy sources instead of twittering
around trying to block every one that comes up, which seems to be the
It is not the Planet that really at risk, dear old Gaia will survive,
as she has survived disasters such as Cretaceous-Tertiary extinction
event. I doubt that Homo sapiens could ever beat that. It is the
survival of H. sapiens that is really at stake. But it could be
argued that we are a parasitic species that would not be greatly
missed by our fellow species and probably a good thing in the long run.
Well that's me off my soap box and nothing personal meant Alan, it is
just my pet bee in my bonnet which escapes at times.
