What is of great concern is having to be seen as part of the new world movement of zero net emissions, all cars off the road, combustion engines banned, everyone on bikes, fossil fuels eradicated, and for the extreme end of the believers, us in cloth sacks behind donkeys ploughing our allotments full of organic veggies.

Given we are so tiny and insignificant, even if all this got enacted tomorrow, it would still not make one jot of difference to the planet. China, India, and America are your issues not us.

But once again ideology isn't about common sense or the bottom line - and that is why it is so dangerous.
