so do my bit when I can. Unless it's a worldwide thing the UK will be just pissing in the wind the size of us.

It's the likes of China and others that need to be on board with climate change

Fair doos with Boris & Co pushing it

Yep me paying a fortune to bin my gas boiler isn't going to make any difference when the Chinese are knocking up new coal fired power stations

I always think to solve climate change you would need to end individualism

In other words being told you can't take more than  a few flights a year or what car you can drive

What worries me is will we basically see the poorest priced out of things which are currently cheap now

And you will still see people who are the richest try to get around and justify their lifestyle. Take coldplay a green tour which sounds anything but!

Totally correct https://fullfact.org/news/are-100-companies-causing-71-carbon-emissions/

China have now committed to no new coal plant investments abroad and to reduce emissions from 2026. Can only see how it goes but Johnson has funded the replacement of 90,000 gas boilers with heat pumps which is pathetic. There are 25 million Gas Boilers and the funding only covers half the cost.

Insulate Britain is a better idea, Insulate Britain lists two main aims on its website:

1. The government should fund the insulation of all social housing by 2025

2. A "legally-binding national plan" for a low energy and low carbon retrofit of all homes in Britain by 2030
Low energy homes use considerably less energy and use renewable energy for heating and electricity.

Neither insulating or heat pumps are going to provide the answer on their own to how to heat homes in the UK, I've lived in an old house where we installed top notch external insulation and all the other bells and whistle, it still needed heating not to mention hot water.

Thousands of jobs (25,000) are expected to be created

Surely You can burn stuff in a closed furnace and have it carbon or whatever filtered so next to fuck all is released, and that next to fuck all would be virtually oxygen.

So, build a big fuck off closed furnace and filter the shite !

Piece of piss this save the world shit

The investment of billions in Teesside is because the government will need to spend billions to meet its climate targets

I dont yet see how this can be seen as a bad thing?

It's the standard cry from Teesside lefties every time there is an announcement about investment in industry in the area, they start saying it isn't really going to do anything, isn't real money etc, such a bunch of miserable gits  :unlike:

Unfortunately the local Labour party are represented by people who have never had an original, positive, constructive thought in their entire lives. They are also completely tone deaf when it comes to what the majority (most important word here) of the electorate want. Houchen and the Tories have completely undercut them and they have no idea how to win back their seats. It's painful to see how much ground they have lost. When will the penny drop that people want to see action, and that they need to offer something. I'm just happy there are some competent Independents where I vote, otherwise I'd be drawing a cock and balls on my voting slip.
