Choice and Prosperity



It's a conundrum, isn't it? Development and climate change. Such a dilemma -convoluted and labyrinthine, loaded and provocative. Whilst India pushes for escape from endemic poverty by pursuing a Nano for everyone, its' islands start to disappear, as do its' neighbours. The result of success will be failure. Hmm. Tricky. Plenty of arguments to be had there. Good job we're all totally focused on it and not distracted by beer and football.

Elsewhere the Murray dries up, as do the Cedars of Lebanon. Bankruptcy beckons.

The poles are not so far apart after all.

When even the CBI say we're not doing enough, we know we're in trouble.

You know what Marc? the truth is, a lot of people here are very worried about the impact of the Nano on the ever increasing traffic volumes; it is just that our politicians are not hearing us. But in which country do politicians listen to the ordinary average citizen?

How great minds (sic) think alike. Thanks for putting it into words and pictures. It is sad that so many are willing to let others pay for their excesses.

Elites are peculiar and often savage beasts, aren't they. From Kings to professional footballers - rolling in other people's money and resources. And how we admire them....
