The Current Affairs Group is an interactive group where all opinions are respected and participation by group members is welcomed.
We meet monthly to discuss issues of International, National & Local interest. Topics covered include recent elections, immigration, various NHS issues, gender inequality, and of course Brexit, to name but a few. Our group is of a size to attract an interesting exchange of views and of a number to enable each member to have their say if they so wish. We meet in a friendly atmosphere, rather than an aggressive debating one and learn from each other, all contributions and opinions of members being valued.
This is the findings of our July deliberations.
“The conclusion of some of our "thoughts on climate change", covering many aspects in detail, were somewhat ambivalent. Though agreement as to causes and what can be done was another matter. A graph of 65million years of climate change courtesy of Google, indicated that the average temperature drop of the planet is steadily and constantly declining. Conversely the range of actual temperatures, from highest to lowest, over the last 5million years are widening. In the case of planetary cycles there is evidence that nature itself is capable of reacting and repairing. An action without the help of humanity. To have some affect humanity's current actions, to control harmful emissions and also population growth, probably needs a dictatorial approach to manage what is a planetary problem. However it is a sobering thought that planetary resources are finite and the irreplaceable consumption of rare elements, e.g. Uranium, Lithium etc., needed for our consumerist society, will be for future humanity to resolve”.
