> I DON'T THINK THERE IS A PROBLEM. I don't think there is a problem either, but its probably sensible to be cautious and do things in a more green way anyhow, so agree with some of the measures being talked about, but others I reckon are taking things too far. (Eg. increase public transport option ...

I'm for improvement, but when you single out specific countries like for example Iran, and say its much worse there than here, yet here was probably suffer more gay people being killed and the authorities doing nothing about it, sure its less legal, but its happening. I don't mind the finger of blam...

Oh indeed, there are many other ways than bombs, so it can be hard to figure out how many degrees more evil one approach is to another..

Its just the UK seems to spend an awful lot of time shipping bombs from its airfields and naturally that seemed to be the first thing that came to mind..

Maybe your right, maybe the one that uses the most bombs to kill the most people is the most evil..

I think something which would help is to lower the requirements for mass production before it becomes profitable, so even if you build only a few, you still make a profit. In the old days when labour was cheap, and machines expensive, we moved towards machines, now that machines are quite expensive,...

Education alone I don't think will do it, if you have inequality between groups where one is gaining far more than the other for no good reason. I see the same thing happening here where new bands of immigrants are hated by existing groups because the newcomers are getting special privilages, like h...

> We need to make the cars ourselves and keep the money at home.

Agreed.


> if you have a better idea why not start your own car company?

I'm suprised there isn't an open source electric car project..

At a guess, I'd say it was a bad thing to do, reasons being it would involve more work, when they are probably very busy as it is, and bring red tape to the situation which previously didn't exist. Eg. Don't draw attention to it too much, and we might hear something. Ask for information and they wil...

I try and make choices even when I don't know the best facts, based on what would be the sensible choice. Take for example an easier problem, crime. Do you: A) Say its all hyped and there isn't really a problem, after all, you've lived in your house for 20 years and you've never been burglured.. B) ...
