Less, it’s already happened.
In 1972 the pesticide DDT, the most effective pesticide against malaria, was banned by the then recently formed Environmental Protection Agency in the USA after Rachel Carson’s book, ‘Silent Spring’, claimed it would result in a cancer epidemic that would affect ‘practically 100 per cent’ of the human population.
This ban was made despite the EPA’s seven month hearing concluding that ‘DDT is not a carcinogenic hazard to man...’.
Rachel Carson is a goddess to the Eco-Fundamentalists and was recently lauded as such on BBC Radio 4.
However, there are some who suggest that her book, by inspiring this ban, has indirectly been responsible for millions of deaths from malaria.
But, maybe because of where these deaths occur, the white middle-class eco-warriors are OK with it.

Well Exile...maybe she is trying to exercise some sort of population control....since people are (allegedly) one of the biggest causes of climate change.

Since this outbreak of Coronavirus in china I am sure there will be fewer flights taken...fewer journeys made...more deaths Mother Nature is doing her bit to assist St Greta in her efforts.

and I know that this may seem to be in very bad taste...or at best not politically correct, but I am not a newsreader on ITN

As long as they are like minded and do not live on vegan food...I can live with that.

Kringlaskolan (bless you!) Södertälje Stockholm, mate. But your translator will be spitting feathers for very little information.

So what do we do with the waste from Pringles?
How can we save the world when there is a delicious product we can’t resist packed with :-
A plastic lid, a foil seal, a cardboard tube & a metal base. Recycle what? Come on be honest if we care about the environment (which I don’t very much) then manufacturers should put things in easily separated components that can be sorted.

Less, the manufacturers do not care either.
Once the product reaches you it ceases to be their problem.
And for those who say that manufacturers DO care....this is just corporate virtue signalling...they don't care REALLY....well, as long as consumers continue to buy the product.

I’ve always thought Pringles were recycled waste.
Compared with a decent potato crisp, they feel to me like something that’s already been eaten by someone else.
I guess if you have no teeth, eating a ‘crisp’ that melts in the mouth is ok.

Re: The weather around the world has gone mad

I was wondering how Extinction Rebellion Vegans can reconcile their beliefs. If we stop eating beef then there will be more and more moo-ing things creating more greenhouse gases (cows already account for 16% of them apparently) so those of us who eat beef are actively helping reduce CO2 emissions.

I think they know that if we all went vegan(no beef, no milk, no cheese, no animal meat at all) then farmers would not raise these animals....but what a dreary life it would be.

Anyway, Mother Nature is doing her best to pare down the population with coronavirus.

A reduction in population would reduce greenhouse gases.
