you tell me ?

i think CC is a "Here and Now threat",

that we cant do anything about,

here's why........

After violent protests, France's prime minister says the government is ditching the fuel tax hike it had previously only suspended for six months.

UpdatedUpdated 11 mins ago

The French government is abandoning a fuel tax hike that was previously only suspended for six months following violent protests, Prime Minister Edouard Philippe has told MPs.

"The government is ready for dialogue and is showing it because this tax increase has been dropped from the 2019 budget bill," he told the lower house of parliament on Wednesday.

The government had earlier said it would not change the version of the budget bill at the Senate, which had dropped the fuel tax increase.

The human race is an addict. Fossil fuels have given us highs of easy food, fast travel, plastics and their manufacturing advantages, medicines, home appliances and round-the-clock-lights. I can't think of an aspect of life untouched.

We can't give them up without the massively painful delirium tremens.

Like all addicts, we hurt those around us (every other living thing) to feed our addiction and we are in denial about the severity of the problem: "I can give it up any time I want."

I don't think we have the willpower to give up.

Sorry, no answers here.
