    John, many hypocrites among them; BBC interviewed two yesterday, the first a mature woman from Hull, "how did you get here?" was the question, "came in my van", "what fuel does it use?" -"DIESEL" was the answer.
    The second was described as a celebrity actress who I never heard of or recognised, she was asked if she flew a lot, "well, yes i do, but only when necessary" that statement probably covers about 95% of what most travellers would say.

    Fossil fuels include coal, oil, and natural gas. Since these energy sources were formed over millions of years from the decomposition of carbon-based life forms such as ourselves, these resources are completely non-renewable over the course of reasonable time frames. Furthermore, the extraction and burning of them for energy pollutes air, water, and soil alike, negatively affecting the natural world, flora, fauna, and humanity included. This effect can mean extinction for certain animals and plants, as well as diseases, birth defects, and death for humans. Every living thing deserves the right to a clean living environment. This statement means a clean place to live, clean air to breathe, clean water, and a clean place to reproduce. With widespread fossil fuel use, these basic rights have been diminished for living things, especially in the countries where the dependence on fossil fuel for energy is virtually absolute. Over the course of time, countries such as Kuwait and Saudi Arabia have become essentially 100% reliant on the non-renewable fossil fuel resources harming our planet. The Worst Offenders
    At least 29 countries source more than 90% of their energy from fossil fuels, including coal, oil, gasoline, and natural gas. The consumption rate seems to be rising most sharply in developing economies with or near rich oil reserves, such as India and Singapore, over the last ten years. There is good news, though, as global dependence on fossil fuels has dropped relative to total energy use since 1971, and the trend is likely to continue as nations convert to greater utilization of renewable resources for energy.
    thick with airborne pollution that residents often walk outside with face masks on and sometimes receive warnings to stay indoors for their respiratory safety. Because of the airborne pollution caused by the burning of fossil fuels, people who live and work in such areas frequently have respiratory illnesses that often result in death. India is one nation dealing with such problems.
    India’s dependence on the consumption of fossil fuel has risen to levels almost three times those seen in 1990. This is a big problem, since global warming is a direct result of humans increasing greenhouse gases through things such as burning fossil fuel for energy. With a billion-strong population it could be worse, however, if India had a dependency on fossil fuel use for energy akin to those most enslaved to petroleum and natural.
    Complete Dependency on Nonrenewable Energy
    Currently, there are at least five countries that depend on fossil fuel for virtually 100% of their respective energy needs. Oman, Qatar, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, and Brunei Darussalam are all currently completely dependent on fossil fuels for energy. In these places, there is a pressing need for far-reaching reform policies to educate their populations about the effects that fossil fuel consumption has on the rest of the world, and how long these effects last, and, most importantly, a diversification of energy sources to include more renewable means.
    Change is Possible
    There have been changes observed in the consumption of fossil fuels that point to better prospects for the future of energy infrastructures and environmental health alike. For example, Egypt and Bosnia and Herzegovina have both significantly decreased their fossil fuel dependence over the last ten years, which points to the possibility of more fossil fuel dependent countries learning about and using renewable resources to help meet their energy needs.
    Renewable energy sources are an option for those countries that are completely dependent on fossil fuels. These can include hydroelectricity in areas that have rivers, wind-powered turbine generators in areas with expansive land that is unusable for crops or wildlife, and solar panels that can cover large areas of desert land or even be fixed atop structures. Renewable energy is a way to wean fossil fuel-dependent countries off of non-renewable resources, hedge energy infrastructures for a future sans petrochemical availability, and teach them how to help save the planet from further global destruction.

    I was thinking of Crematoria , How many crematoriums are there,? how many Millions of bodies are burned every year , smoke and gasses pouring into the atmosphere,
    How much does all that affect the climate.??????
    Some countries such as India have a 95% cremation rate.
    The cremation takes between 90 minutes and 3 hours depending on the size and age of the person.
    also the temperature is 1,000 c. THAT IS A LOT OF HEAT.

    They have scrubbers to clean the exhaust. My brother is a qualified cremator, if you want more details I can ask him.

    So what is the answer to what to do with the body once it has ceased functioning?? We are running out of space for burials unless we do a "stacking" arrangement. Just saw movie Ad Astra..... he just pushed them outside to float away into deep space... an option? A lot of space junk up there already. Interesting topic.

    Capsula Mundi ?

    A Burial Pod That Safely Decomposes Bodies Beneath New Trees.

    Even possibly: Bury bodies along UK's motorways to ease burial crisis, expert suggests

    New approaches to disposing of the dead needed as graveyards and crematoria are almost full.

    All needs much thought but, new ideas will be adopted in the future.

    Tony #214, yes they do have scrubbers in crematoriums just as they do in clean coal fired power stations as I have seen in Japan and South Korea.

    But in countries such as India, Pakistan, Indonesia and others they do not.
    The bodies there are burned in the open on funeral pyres made of wood.
    I have witnessed a few in Bali, interesting to see all they go through before the match is struck.

    While there are many countries where marches, such as in London, are taking pace there are many more where they are not.

    Countries such as Norway and Sweden do not normally involve them selves in such.
    But look to many nations in Africa, Iraq, Afghanistan, Some South American nations, China, India, Russia.
    Do we see any demonstrations there??

    The argument regarding 'Climate Change; is a very one sided affair, with those having the most to gain leading the charge.
    Those with the money opposing it all, and the almighty dollar speaks much louder than any demonstrator.

    Consider the number of open fires on any day around the globe where all manner of fuel is used, it may be wood, dry cow dung and many other things.
    Used in Countries where that is the only way to cook or heat accommodation.

    Man has come a long way with the use of fossil fuels, unlike many years ago when the first motor vehicle came into being, now the emissions are almost negligible.
    Any mammal in one day can produce more emissions of Co2 and Methane than any car.

    There is nothing wrong in cleaning up the planet, reduce waste, recycle, make better use of raw materials, but do not use the claim the world will end to garner young people to your campaign.

    There is an Indian by the name of Adani, one of the richest in the world and richest in India.
    He is opening one of the largest coal mines here in Queensland.
    A good friend of ours is married to one of his top men, an Australian who he head hunted for his skills and knowledge, the only westerner on his board.
    As he told me, this man with his wealth and influence will achieve all he sets out to do.
    Happy daze John in Oz.
