But what are YOU going to do?
What do YOU consider the biggest problems? And what are YOUR suggestions to resolve them?

Your original post is just a link to pictures which are there to make the middle classes go "oh darling, we really ought to buy locally sourced steak for dinner."

Just not giving up the Malbec to go with it or the Kenyan grown and air-freighted mange-tout

Same old stuff. The wheel turns and comes back to the same spot again and again and again. It's not MY problem - it's OUR problem and WE have to cope with it and with EVERYONE together I'm willing to do my part to the full.


My suggestions as to how we could start you can read above.

Re: Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear...

And so it goes on.

What was the purpose of your original post? What point were you trying to make?

As I asked earlier: Is it over-population? polution? consumerism? At least pick one topic which you believe passionately about and could be changed if you we all did x, y and z.

Your original post is about as informative as the Daily Mail.

Here, have a look at a whole bunch of pictures featuring beautiful natural landscapes - https://www.google.ch/search?q=swiss...w=1481&bih=890

Does that even up the balance a little?

So Where and What do you suggest?
I suggest we all stop sleeping with fertile ladies. All our problems in the world today are caused by over population.

We can feed everyone in the world today, but there is little time left to get the world population under control. If we cannot do this, people will starve to death and the ensuing pictures will only give the Daily Mail more excuses to shove the problem in our faces.

We don't need to bring the Daily Mail into this. But maybe we should stop countries handing out children's allowances. This would at least indicate a need to stop having children- as you say the planet's most pressing problem.
