Thread title is a Misnomer . . . . while the article is aired by the BBC, it's written by the World Wildlife Federation
So, it's immediately biased, heavily so. So put it in perspective. I'd also recommend the thread title be changed, as this is giving the onus to the BBC when in fact, they aren't responsible.
Some good points.
Our consumables are disappearing at an alarming rate. We NEED an immediate alternate fuel source that can displace crude oil. However, since the oil industry has every major country begging for more and is in the pockets of many world leaders, that is going to be a damned hard thing to accomplish.
We need skylights to let in sunlight so we can turn off lights, we need better insulation so we can turn down the thermostats, we need solar panels to heat our hot water, we need to recycle our waste.
I do think 2050 is a bit silly, over ambitious, but hey, the World Wildlife Federation is known for it's alarmist uber-environmental, almost Green Peace like, rhetoric anyway.
FOR THOSE THAT FOUGHT FOR IT, FREEDOM HAS A FLAVOR THE PROTECTED WILL NEVER KNOW OR UNDERSTAND
