Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

"Monbiot had a change of heart sometime in the last year "

A change of heart regarding nuclear yes, not regarding renewables, which he still promotes.

"I suspect he's been nobbled by some more-subtle-than-usual lobbying"

Do you ever stop to wonder whether anyone may think differently from you without necessarily being the puppet of propaganda? Do you ever wonder whether Monbiot might actually have spent longer than you checking evidence on one of his pet subject?

Someone looks at evidence and changes his mind, surely that is a rare positive thing these days, whether or not he was correct in doing so.

Earth provides enough to satisfy every man's need, but not every man's greed. Gandhi

Sure, sometimes I just write it off to their stupidity, sometimes I put it down to the arrogance of intellect. Whatever, mostly I gave up expecting people to agree or think like me sometime before my age reached double figures.

As you and I have been around here a while, why do my limitations grate all of a sudden ?

keep to the Fen Causeway
