The key part to me is the last item. I shall now throw away my sackcloth and ashes, and continue to pollute the planet with my petrol engine devices, an clearly they are not the root cause of the problem having only been in large scale use for around 100 years or so. The cause of our ills is very obviously the peasant classes from the birth of time until the early part of the 20th century. they did all of their cooking over wood, peat and coal burning fires. They even had the audacity to heat their caves and huts in the same way. Now we are left with the taxation that has caused.
Cabin fever rules. I think it may be time for a ride. A little cold but dry, and I can always set fire to some logs to get warm upon my return.
