    Very hard to not use palm oil products, its in just about everything we all use, eg petrol, i believe contains as much as 10% palm oil, and there was talk of increasing it to 15%, the same as the USA, kt

    'Pliny' The Roman Historian wrote in 79 A D

    Men mistook measurement for understanding and they had always put themselves at the centre of everything. That was their greatest conceit. The earth is becoming warmer - it must be our fault, the mountain (volcano) is destroying us - we have not propitiated the gods! it rains too much, it rains too little - a comfort to think that these things are somehow connected to our behaviour, that only if we lived a little better, a little more frugally, our virtue would be rewarded. But here is nature sweeping all before him - unknowable, all-conquering, indifferent and sees in her fires the futility of human pretensions.

    Seems nothing has changed in 2000 years.

    If anyone cares to look back at the climate of our world we will notice the change over the centuries.
    1 Antarctic was a green and pleasant land at one time.
    2. Greenland was Green and full of Forests.
    3. The North of England could grow and did grow vines.
    An Ice age gripped the planet and the world changed.
    Could this be the end of natures ice age?

    Scrubbers to protect the environment ? - Open loop scrubbers are increasingly being labelled environmentally unfriendly and damaging because although the remove sulphur emissions from the air only to discharge them into the sea. A number of ports, including Antwerp, Singapore, and Fujairah have already banned their use in their ports and Gibraltar is considering it.

    Piny (#22) was correct in that mother nature is still boss as she has just demonstrated in perhaps the most powerful capital in the world, Washington D C., no doubt she still has a lot of tricks up her sleeve, a lot of volcanos are rumbling.
