    David Attenborough's 'A Life on Our Planet' just out on Netflix is excellent. Truly excellent.

    I really, REALLY hope people listen to the message. If they’re not going to consider it from Sir David himself, then all hope is lost.

    Do you mean in terms of a drop off greenhouse gas emissions?

    The numbers I read when everything was shut down, planes, trains and automobiles, was about an 8% drop off. This is roughly the drop we'll need to achieve year on year to hit the Paris targets. But that drop has all but disappeared now and we're close to where we were before the pandemic. What that does show is the upper limit to which individual choice can actually affect things and it is not enough. Every climate wonk and activist ultimately comes to the conclusion that this 8% figure underlines - people power driving policy change is the only way to affect things on the scale we need.

    That would be my expectation. Indirectly, but yes.

    That's more like it, when the greenies start to offer up alternatives I can actually start to listen.
