    Well, we know Vulcans can't lie. But they can be wrong. Just like well compensated, tenured "public servants" that have significant skin in the game.

    'No Blade Of Grass' 1970............A film from a book written 15 years earlier. About pollution and world starvation.

    'Yellow Taxi' 1970..............Joni Mitchell.......Song about cars and building every where 'Urbanisation'

    'Crazy Horses' 1972............The Osmonds............Song about pollution.

    'This Town Aint Big Enough For Both Of Us' 1974.........Sparks.......Song about over population.

    'Never turn your Back On Mother earth' 1974..............Sparks...........song about the destruction of the planet by humans.

    'Burn Baby Burn' 1974...........Hudson & Ford..........Song about the burning of the rain forests.

    'Mama Nature Said' 1973.......Thin Lizzy.......Song about destroying planet.

    Just a few of the things I remember from my early teenage years when it was popular then to bang on about the environment and I believed to be all true back then and worried me to death.

    The movement faded away for about 10 years or more when they told us the ice caps would melt if we didn't stop using deodorant because the ozone layer (we had never heard of) was depleted and if the ice caps didn't melt we would have to stay indoors.

    Since then people have discovered a way to make mega bucks from all this. Even worse corrupt political people have realised a way to tax hard workers even more to line the pockets of themselves and friends.

    Some species since then have gone or are in trouble. Since the early 70's the population of the planet isnt far off doubling.

    The answer it seems is just to tax people or take away their wealth some other way. Nobody restricts babies or offers out free contraception which 'is' the cause of all the stuff they keep banging on about.

    Now we have young Greta at 16 who knows it all and how we all must live and we must listen too and change our lives now!!!!.

    If she was just a few months younger she would be 15 and not able to make adult decisions being a minor. Funny old world innit?

    I'm very fair with my hatred for Democrats and Republicans. Mommy and daddy taught me how to share.

    Joy and happiness is not the norm on WF....writing being a form of release for sum and often mixed with that is confessional writing..sub con or not but the self is the thing we know better than anyone and we and others can predict how one will react fairly accurately...there are so many cliches to this stuff an the blame game plays apart but for me as in so much in life..luck will determine your journey and bad luck will be a constant companion but law of averages say some will get more than others...
