I have solar panels, why? cause I can only get .5% for my savings without locking it up for 3/5 yrs, It gives me free electric and so saves me money, I also charge my Hydundi Ionic from the Panels for FREE (on a trickle charge) and my petrol car very rarely gets used, we all go for the EV. When you drive an EV yourself you will be amazed, after you get over your hatred of free clean energy? An EV has about 20 moving parts and old fossil fuel car has 2000 moving parts. There's no exhaust, cam belt/clutch/etc/etc. If new tech is better, its a no brainer. I grow some of my own veg and fruit, why? it tastes great! It saves me money, I am retired and I enjoy it. I want the new technology, I love it and it is often so much better than the old stuff.
I love history, for centuries people searched for the North West Passage, many died in the attempt. Now shipping companies are looking to start using it because it open nearly all year round, so we have a temp rise I don't care who or what has done this, I don't want to add to it. Have a look at some articles

[www.theguardian.com] China sets sights on the North west Passage as a potential trade boon.
Yes I agree we need to start doing so much more to clean up ALL the crap, if it costs so what we can always find money to bail out the Banks or War! The whole world is still struggling from that 2008 banking crash. Why not get them to pay it back? If I go to a bank for a bridging loan They expect me to pay it back! So lets get a banking tax in place, yeah right they'll let us do that. lol. I've gone on to long. malc
