I see the Royal family is leading the way in the battle against climate change.
My father if he was still alive would have gone ballistic to have seen and heard the goings on in Sofia last night.
A dedicated Blackpool supporter I can remember him telling me how mad he was when in Berlin in 1938 when England played Germany and that during the playing of the German National Anthem the English team were instructed to give the Nazi salute, appeasement he said never works with bullies, as we found out to our cost a year later when war broke out.
It would appear that some in this world just thrive on hate, discriminate either on race, colour, tribal or religious grounds and it is a reminder even today in Northern Ireland with it's miles of Peace Walls separating Catholic and Protestant communities that some things never seem to go away, however much the majority try.
I see two MAJOR risks to humanity, one the Nuclear threat that could be imminent the other global warming.
The energy is all on the latter while hardly any mention is made of the thousands of thermonuclear weapons that exist in the world today.
I am aware some will say the likes of Russia, the US China and the UK know the risk and if war was to break out within this group it would be limited to conventional weapons but who knows.
The other problem lies with the four countries Israel, North Korea, Pakistan and India., with the everlasting tensions between the latter two and the Pakistan military having links to terror groups the possibility of a rogue explosion could start a chain reaction.
However much we say that the risks are known and the likely hood of nuclear war unlikely there is always the chance that hackers could interfere with a defence weapons programme with one nation believing it was under attack.

We’re destroying our own well being, our natural home and all for profit. When the last tree is cut down and the last fish taken from the sea then we won’t be eating money.
A nuclear war will happen before the trees and fish disappear, if only these demonstrators could focus on the "end of the world" happening tomorrow as opposed to fifty year time.
Like Jezza, I also was disappointed with him coming back, not because of his record in management but the circumstances surrounding his departure, the way he left us last time in 2008.
Also like Jezza I see little point in him being sacked at this early stage but hope he learns from what has taken place so far this season, it is going to take some doing if we are to end up in a play off spot come end of the season, just hope the cavalry arrives in January.
