The capacity for the great and the good of the tranzie world to get together and blather – usually at our expense – seems unending.

One of their latest gab-fests is "World Water Week", celebrated by the egregious Euractiv. It publishes an article which has scientists and experts from around the world warning that "global food wastage must be halved by 2025 to meet the challenges of feeding the rapidly-growing population and preserving global water supplies."

"to place an effective water-saving strategy, requiring that food wastage be minimised, firmly on the political agenda."

Which means a "Commissioner for Eating All Your Greens Before You Get Any Pudding" will be appointed,billions will be spent setting up Departments of Waste Measurement,hordes of inspectors employed.
The contents of our shopping baskets will be measured,we will have tp submit figures for the resultant biomass. If the figures don't balance,the difference will be designated waste and we will be fined.

Certainly not when it comes to food or water in countries where the lack of water in particular is a serious and constant problem.

However, we Irish, living on one of the wettest islands in the world have recently been pounded with several radio adverts on the subject that would make you shiver with the irony.

The last few weeks have been some of the wettest August weeks in living memory with roads closed and landslides in several areas and these guys frequently ran adds about the importance of saving water. As the adverts ran, the rain pelted the windows.

Weighing in with his wisdom, Gormless Gormley, the minister for nanny stateism, also known as the Environment minister, signed legislation that makes it mandatory for all new building to install dual flush toilets.

All this in one of the wettest Augusts in living memory!

Yet again, the greens fly in the face of the prevailing reality to flog their nanny state baloney!

Peter,

Its vitally important to request a receipt for that bio-mass; because at the end of the financial year (soon to be the carbon year), the net over payment will be removed from the capital account... so to speak.

And the Carbon credit was born. The tax on life itself.

Though I think you mean Tax Relief.

Surely, they're planning for our future between the cheese and wine tastings. A few Soylent Green production plants, maybe.
