Having just sat through the BBC 10 o'clock news, I was not surprised to see that the lead story was Copenhagen, the Prince of Wales whittering on and the news that Broon is there to make sure it all gets nicely ballsed up.
There was another story from Seattle. Today the Boeing 787 'Dreamliner' had its maiden flight. Al-Jabeeba reports that:
'Its popularity is partly thanks to its lightweight design. Made of carbon and titanium,'
Wait for it, here comes the pay-off. What's the main benefit of this design?
'it should reduce fuel consumption as well as save on maintenance costs.'
And? And? Come on, join the dots, apart from reduced costs due to less fuel (around 20% less) what else is reduced?
*deep intake of breath*
*I'm holding it.*
*Still holding it*
*No, it's no good.*
When you bear in mind the lead story, nowhere in the report on the telly was the connection made between the reduced use of fuel and the reduction in carbon dioxide emissions. The website article sort of alludes to it.
Come on, just try to resist the agenda for once, won't you?
