:shock:

This is an environmental catastrophe.

The poisoned earth around there may never recover.

Yet,it is way down the list of news items...behind the Brits...celebrity gossip etc etc.
Either we are alone in the Universe or we are not.Both ideas are overwhelming.

There's bad stuff going on all over the World. Has been for a long time.

But people here mostly don't really know and/or care (apart from not wanting to seem that they don't during charity appeals). And on the rare occasions we have a chance to show we know/care and send money or/and soldiers there's always people willing to moan about it.

Of course no-one outside the UK (and plenty inside) knows or cares about the Brits.

So it balances out.
