QUOTE OF THE DAY - A little bit of honest pragmatism

From Glastonbury's Michael Eavis:

'...if you switched off everything that created carbon, we'd be bored to tears.'

Enough, indeed, for me to add the label below of 'The Two E's'.

But something I wish a few who would impose their rather utopian, and indeed often selective, view on matters green would pause to consider.

The tricky part, of course, is at what point we switch from acceptably not being bored and unacceptably consuming to excess. And who sets, or thinks they should set that tipping point, and to what degree of consistency and fairness.
