Soaring food prices could leave UK consumers forking out almost £6.50 for a loaf of bread and more than £18 for a pint of beer by 2030 unless urgent action is taken to avert dangerous climate change, environmentalists have claimed.


Everyones on the Climate Change gravy train bandwagon.

next contract I will offer clients the opportunity to offset any carbon produced during my contract for only an extra £50 per billable day

Current client has a section on carbon footprint of the project for all investment/funding requests. :suicide:

Hang about, I'm sure I've seen/read a report that states that yields would go up with higher Carbon Dioxide levels?

Does anybody know the cost of a pint in 1967?

I wonder if we murdered all the climate change fanatics, how much valuable resource (food, fuel, travel) that would save?


Enough to justify it, I feel.

A casual Google indicates about 2 shillings.

Why not ask Zeity ?

I think inflation is accelerating since the last 20 years and peak oil will make matters worse. The money we save for retirement will be worth peanuts.

Ok - so in 2030 a pint will be 18 quid. Say it's 3.50 to 4 quid now.
18/3.5 = 5.14 - So a pretty big increase there

In 1967 if a pint was 10p, I know that in the late 80's, a pint was close to 2 quid. That's a 20 fold increase in a 21 year period. was there global warming then also?

The 21 years between 88 and now have been good in price of a pint terms

These "activists" do themselves no favours by issuing press releases like this. Surely most people recognise that it's BS

OK, what we need to do is get "climate change" supporters to write an affidavit to say they have reviewed all the evidence and fully believe in it, wait until the overwhelming proof of fudge statistics, government manipulation of public opinion, bandwaggoning and evidence of faux science come to pass, and then round these idiots up and throw them in the nuthouse for breaching the UK Mental Health Act 1983.

You would like to think that but you'd be wrong. Most people just think 18 quid a pint! I worked at this textile place when I left school to earn a bit of cash before heading off to uni. There was this lad I worked with who was about 16 and as dim as they come. He was on 1.97 an hour. The company brought in somebody to sell pensions to their staff. They told this lad that he'd be on about 4k a month when he retired and everybody laughed at this. They didn't factor in the fact that this lad would have been paying into a pension for 50 years and that 4k a month then (about 2030) would be probably the same as a 1.97 per hour job!

I remember telling him that on 4k a month he could buy 12 ladas a year. his answer was that he would 'save up for something good'
