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.
