We are being advised to avoid eating red meat and dairy products, to eliminate cattle and reduce production of methane.  One MP suggests we should scrap all our cars.   The Amazon rain forest, which produces 20% of Earth's oxygen and soaks up CO2, is seriously under threat.  The oceans are being polluted at an alarming rate, and coral reefs are dying in vast numbers.  Household refuse is becoming difficult to manage, and recycling has a long way to go before it becomes really effective.  Oh dear, what a boring outlook for future generations.  It's great to be old!smile

Our country is small compared to the likes of France.

We dont need our own version of TGV.

Total passenger numbers in France and the UK are very similar which just confirms how busy our rail system is. French rail passengers travel a greater number of kilometres than passengers in the UK but that is only to be expected given that France has twice the land mass of the UK.
