Thank you for this story, Dandelion. It sort of connects with an article which I read on Friday in a UK newspaper which linked together pollution, with not so green electric powered motor transport which Britain is expected to convert to, a huge UK power generating plant in Yorkshire which used to be coal-fired before converting to wood pellets, and the destruction of vast tracts of primal forest in the USA being felled by chainsaws that pump out carbon monoxide. The logs then being ground down into pellets for this power station, generating yet bigger quantities of poison gas. The cargoes are then trucked to the coast producing more CO before being shipped across the Atlantic, producing more poison gas. Finally, from the UK coast even more filth-churning trucks run the cargoes inland to Yorkshire and onto the huge power generating plant there.
It has since been discovered that the wood pellets from the primal forest in the middle of the USA create more waste gases than the British coal it replaced, which was sourced from a few miles away, used to do. I just wish our politicians would explain to us just how all this polluting, destructful activety is justified when our generation is suposed to be the caretakers and guardians of this beautiful planet of ours.

Thank you Glenville for connecting the dots and explaining on the thread how those connected dots make more pollution for us all at the same time destroying an old growth forest. I suppose the pushed that electric motor transport as moving into the future of clean and green. Trying to pull the wool over everyone's eyes in the process while they know what they are really doing.
