“The heads of 10 major oil and gas companies have denied they are paying lip service to climate change initiatives while conducting business as usual. … Critics said the pledges by the Oil and Gas Climate Initiative were little more than hot air.” (http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2015/oct/16/oil-companies-deny-that-joint-climate-pledge-is-lip-service)

Should we expect anything more from oil and gas than lip gloss and hot air?

“In their joint statement the 10 oil and gas company CEOs from the BG Group, BP, Eni, Pemex, Reliance Industries, Repsol, Saudi Aramco, Shell, Statoil and Total, said: … ‘Over the coming years, we will collectively strengthen our actions and investments to contribute to reducing the GHG (greenhouse gas) intensity of the global energy mis.'”

Speaking of missing things, “oils” and “propane” rearrange to ‘oops near lip’.

“Recently in the UK, the government has been taken to court by WWF and other NGOs because of their failure to work with the agricultural sector to tackle diffuse pollution, which is undermining the restoration of nature.” (http://www.wwf.org.uk/about_wwf/press_centre/index.cfm?uNewsID=7687)

Why the UK government wants out of Europe: to stop being held to silly laws that hold back the vital intensification of farming.

Climate Alarmist

“The Bank of England governor has given a stark warning that climate change poses a huge risk to global stability. … Mark Carney pointed out the rapid increase in weather-related catastrophes and the jump in both the physical and financial costs. He said the challenges currently posed by climate change ‘pale in significance compared with what might come’.” (http://www.wwf.org.uk/about_wwf/press_centre/index.cfm?uNewsID=7688)

Him too? Must be another of Rupert Murdoch’s “Extreme greenies, … Against growth and subsequent jobs.” (https://twitter.com/rupertmurdoch/status/639405066433220608)

Freed not breed

“In a statement, SeaWorld said it was disappointed by the conditions attached to the approval of its Blue World expansion, set to open in 2018, which would triple the size of existing killer whale enclosures.
‘Breeding is a natural, fundamental and important part of an animal’s life and depriving a social animal of the right to reproduce is inhumane,’ the park said.” (http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2015/oct/09/california-bans-captive-breeding-of-seaworld-killer-whales)

Easy to confuse ‘breeding’ with ‘freedom’.

“Pooh wouldn’t have had such fun in the Hundred Acre Wood if Piglet had spent his days in an intensive pig unit and … Peter Rabbit’s life would be dull to read about if he’d been kept in a cage.” (http://www.ciwf.org.uk/news/2015/10/livestock-in-literature)

Yet it’s not all bad: we wouldn’t have the Gruffalo if it weren’t for early genetic modification experiments.

“15 countries have now told Brussels they will send territorial exclusion requests to the big agricultural multinationals including Monsanto, Dow, Syngenta and Pioneer. … Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wallonia will also be opting out on a regional basis. Wales has more recently opted out, making England the only country in the British Isles to allow GM crop cultivation.” (http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2015/oct/01/half-of-europe-opts-out-of-new-gm-crop-scheme)

Wretched countries must now seek permission from munificent agrochemical companies?
