I totally agree one hundred percent about local air quality mart, but in my opinion (and the opinion of lot's of others) it will do nothing to address climate change there are too many outside forces at work to make even the slightest difference. And how would you know if it has made any difference to the climate? It takes hundreds of years to monitor even the smallest changes. And it's because of this the average person can be taken in by the media.

Indeed yes, we'll never know. In the meantime though, cleaner air would be good so still worth the effort of reducing emissions where possible.

Edit: This must be a coincidence ..mustn't it? With the fewer cars and aircraft there has been during these lockdowns, there has been a return of garden birds I haven't seen in ages, Finches of various types, a thrush or two and even some sparrows. I wonder if they will disappear again when emissions are back to previous levels?

Greenpeace investigators in Turkey found plastic waste from leading supermarkets dumped, burned, piled into mountains and left to spill into rivers and the sea.

Greenpeace examined 10 locations around the southern Turkish city of Adana in March and published the data on Monday in its report, Trashed. It found plastic packaging from Tesco, Asda, Co-op, Aldi, Sainsbury’s, Lidl and Marks & Spencer dumped, left in bags or burned. Plastic rubbish from retailers such as B&Q, Debenhams, Poundland and Spar was also found.

The British waste had been exported recently. It included a coronavirus antigen test and a packet with a use-by date of August 2021.


The fundamental problem inability to manage our plastic use and production.

It's a pity that we don't do our own plastic recycling Cinders, instead of sending stuff halfway around the world (using fuel and creating CO2) for it just to be dumped the same as we would probably have done.
