Soaring oil price could raise cost of petrol to

Of course I've considered such possibilities, but our over-consumption is so grotesque, that it only makes sense to power down and relocalise to avert armaggeddon. Methinks you are just burying your head in the sand. In denial. The Optimum Population Trust estimates the UK's long-term carrying capacity to be 15 million with our current lifestyle or 30 million with a modest lifestyle (i.e. ensuring everyone has enough to eat but sourcing more locally and wasting much less). If it;s any consolation the DR...

Gordon Brown: We risk wasting an entire generation

... How to argue against stubborn opponents of neolabourite globalist policies: 1) Suggest your adversary suffers from "conspiracy theory" syndrome.

This newspaper denies the medium to long-term unsustainability of London's growing population. Although Greater London's population officially peaked in 1938 at 8.5 million, only a small fraction of its daytime workforce commuted from outlying satellite towns back then. ....
