I was watching the BBC news channel a few minutes ago. There was a stark warning from Nature that mankind is going to destroy the world, as we know it, because of what we are doing to the planet.

The ice in the Northern hemisphere is melting 9 times faster than it was a relatively few years ago.

Obviously if this goes on happening, low lying towns like Ayr and Troon will be underwater.

We in the Western world have become Americanised. We have become a ‘must have’ society, but we have ignored the Far East and what we have done to it. The skies in the industrial towns China and India are polluted, just like our skies were when I was younger.

Lately when I have been in department stores I have lost count of the number of products on display that were made in the Far East. I couldn’t figure out how it can be cheaper to manufacture a product in China, package it, send it across the world by ship, then onto motorised delivery vehicles and still make a profit. Then it dawned on me. The answer is POLLUTION!

Manufacturers in the West wouldn’t be allowed to have the volume of factories there are in the Far East. So we kid ourselves on that we have rules which will give us pollution free skies, but we condemn China for the pollution it creates making products which we want!

So what have we got, Wind Turbines. Pollution free. Well actually not all Wind Turbines are pollution free. According to the BBC News website, many of these installations use a gas which is widely used in the electrical industry to prevent short circuits and accidents.

The gas is 23,500 times more warming than carbon monoxide (CO2). It is known as SF6. It persists in the atmosphere, warming the Earth for at least 1000 years.

The BBC were quoting an article written by Matt McGrath, Environmental Correspondent.

The leaks of the little known gas in the UK and the rest of the EU in 2017 were equivalent to putting an EXTRA 1.3 million cars on the road.

I sincerely hope this a a hoax. If not, who can we trust.
