Too true. China for instance. After raising two fingers to the Kyoto treaty, they're building a new, manky, coal fired power station every week and they've recently overtaken USA as the world's biggest polluter. In Beijing, you can't even see the sun at midday, never mind the stars at night.
Meanwhile China and India are hurling up at least two every week between them (and that's a conservative estimate).
So, even if one were to focus on the environmental aspects, this is about equivalent to emptying the ocean by removing a cupful of water.
But that's not the point, and Dilfor is being willfully stupid. I do not regard this 'bunch of crusties' as scary - just pathetic and deluded fools. What is scary is that a jury of their peers can see this sort of behaviour as justifiable in law. I repeat, if that is upheld, we are on a slippery slope. I believe that wind turbines threaten bee colonies with their nasty rotating blades, and that the pollination of flowers by bees is all that stands between us and eco-meltdown when the plant food chain dies off and we all starve. So I'm going out tomorrow to sabotage ten of them - and by this interpretation of the law, I'm doing us all a favour and must be praised and cannot be found guilty of any criminal act...
