  1. I think everyone knows all that already, people are just ignoring it and hoping it will go away. Governments are too afraid to address the issue as it would mean making unpopular decisions that may lead to them losing power. Private companies are going to carry on with their current practices as long as it remains profitable. Whatever the solution it’s going to be extremely expensive and no one is prepared to face up to it. So everyone’s just burrying their heads in the sand. Slice of ice cream cake anyone ?
