London climate-change street protest arrests reach 290 on second day in World News Posted Saturday at 12:15 PM 32 minutes ago, Chomper Higgot said: "Walking from there, I passed many of the demonstrators at Oxford Circus. Most of whom were carrying plastic bags, drinking water from plastic bottles and eating takeaway food in single use polystyrene or plastic containers!" I guess if you say so. But here's a thing, I wonder when the idea of plastics being a threat to the environment entered your thinking and how?! These people have done nothing to make me more aware of pollution, climate change or any other environmental issue. Issues I have been aware of and joining legitimate campaigns about since the 1970s. None of which alters my comment that "These people who claim to care about the environment are not only causing a huge deterioration of Central London's air quality, they are also producing a huge amount of non biodegradable, plastic waste!" Do you find that acceptable?
