A cursory look at the political crap being peddled concerning the forthcoming local (and in Scotland and Wales national elections) shows that with regard to 'saving the planet', all parties are falling over themselves to show their green credentials. Up here in Scotland, all the parties, and without exception, are pledging to cover the landscape in windmills and to cut our carbon consumption by up to 80%. How do you vote against this stupidity - there is no choice!! I would gladly vote if I could tick a square saying "none of the above". I suspect the rest of the country will be presented with the same 'choice'. This is not how democracy should be.
