    If she really wanted to make a significant difference, she should be campaigning in China and India.

    Indeed! Off on a bit of a tangent, when all the fuss was going on about freon R12, the mountains of fridges in the uk waiting to be processed etc etc. I was involved in a venture in to the scrap and recycling world. The freon 12 coming out of the recycling stuff was being bottled and sold to china and india! So we took the alleged problem gas, bottled it under strict conditions and sent to third world countries where the excellent shade tree mechanics used it! Hohum!

    India is jam packed with wandering prophets of doom, announcing the end is nigh, repent, repent, before it's too late! Nobody would notice

    Bollocks. It happens anyway with or without humans, or industry.. or the witterings of demented cult-followers.
