I can't see Greta Thunderberg whistling along to his tunes considering his carbon footprint with all that lot, has he got shares in a power station

But she’s using the media, and all of it's polluting technology, but of course, that’s OK, she’ll probably be selling her own perfume when it’s all blown over, but given the latest debacle, that’s up for debate. I know I should know better, and best of luck to her.

:shocked:

"How dare you" ;-)

Yes, I admire the concern, dedication and caring about the planet for everyone, but I’m a bit too cynical to believe the powers that be will let her get very far.

Agreed but that's not really her fault and at least she's doing something.

Yeah, she's achieved more in 2 years than I have in 45 so I'm not going to criticise.

More vacuum cleaner jokes required. :clap:

<BREAKING NEWS>
Microsoft have started manufacturing vacuum cleaners. At last they've produced something that doesn't suck.

True story -
When I was a youngster and discovering the joys of the machine called a vacuum cleaner I made the mistake of vacuuming too close to the open budgie bird cage. The little fellow was curious what this metal tube was sucking up all the grit and feathers that it liked to kick around. He was a little too fat to go down the tube but imagine little birdie feet sticking out the end.
