If climate change is such a threat ...

... why do we have 24 hours TV ?

Surely the BBC could save the planet by shutting down for 8 hrs a day ?

Perhaps the Guardian could stop murdering trees and contributing to climate change by turning them into drivel.

Think of all the plasma screens, LCD TV's, household lights ( as people go to bed ) and higher birth rate (especially amongst the extinction threatened middle class) that could be saved and would result.

Or perhaps Climate change isn't really what they are on about ?

Actually, MiaS - I think that's a brilliant idea. If television cut broadcasting hours to, six in the morning to midnight or even one o'clock, it would make a huge difference. Oh, but then they'd lose revenue so that wouldn't do - best just to put the onus on us, the people and make the guilt & responsibility ours, not theirs.

The bastards are just determined to make us all wear hair shirts for taxation purposes, nothing else! And the tree-huggers, of course, are full of received wisdom instead of facts!

"Oh, but then they'd lose revenue so that wouldn't do"

Of course, MiaS particularly mentioned the Beeb - and their revenue is fixed. So if they did turn off, as they used to, during the middle of the night then their income would be unaffected. Indeed, it might mean a considerable revenue saving, and we all know how anxious they are to be seen to be saving money.

That of course was not the point of the post - and I did like it! We all know how hypocritical some (stress the word) CC campaigners can be - Al Gore anyone?

Excellent thinking MiaS!

Where do I sign?

Perhaps it could be tied to a reduced license fee option?

Like it used to be. 2 hours kids programmes, a break, 4 hours adult programmes. All shite anyway, we got shot of our box ages ago, and amuse ourselves writing piss-taking letters to the TVLA (aka Crapita)

Think you should float this on a Guardian CiF Moonbat rant, and watch them go
