I don't think you want to do that

Chortling quietly about this push for a law against 'Ecocide'. In the words of Harry Enfields annoying old git character, "I don't think you want to do that."

My reasoning, gentle reader, is as follows; Eco campaigners push for more biofuels to 'reduce carbon emissions'. More biofuel production requires more fertiliser and land. Rainforests cut down for oh-so-profitable biofuel production. Agricultural runoff from increased biofuel production gets into rivers. Rivers run into sea with extra silt because trees which used to hold the soil in place have been cut down. Extra silt and nitrates runoff about as good for Coral Reef habitats as toxic waste dumping. Coral reefs die, rainforests diminish, and all because of biofuels. I'm not even going to touch on the food riots caused by biofuel production induced shortages.

Even the EU have produced a report saying that Biofuel production is four times more hazardous to the Environment. And that's only if you still hold to the unproven and increasingly discredited notion that man made CO2 emissions have any significant effect upon the climate.

Sooo. Coral reefs damaged. Rainforests diminishing even faster than before. Food shortages. Cause; Biofuel production. Now tell me who is guilty of promoting 'Ecocide'? Oh yes, surprise, surprise; the 'Green' lobby. Including Greenpeace, WWF, et al.

So chaps, I wouldn't be too keen to pass laws of this nature because the law of unintended consequences will undoubtedly come back to bite you.
