Just a very quick post here today about Greta Thunberg who is back and is moaning about climate change again.

All I can say, without wishing to be too rude is;

Give it a rest we’re up to our necks in it at the moment, what with Covid-19 and Brexit, why don’t you go to China where there really is pollution and have a go at them, I’m sure they would welcome you with open arms.

About The Diary of a Country Bumpkin

I am a retired actor, although to be honest I only retired because I wasn't getting any work and the option of becoming an unemployed actor/waiter at my age was ludicrous, especially as my waiting skills are non-existent. Having said I’m retired, I don’t think there really is such a thing as a retired actor for I am still available for work, I just don’t have an agent or any connections with regards to obtaining any worthwhile work. I have over the years done student films when there is nothing else available, always low paid (if at all) the only incentive was always the promised copy of the finished film for your show reel which nine times out of ten always failed to materialise. I spent many years looking after my aged mother who had dementia, hence the lack of acting work but shortly after her death I was lucky enough to run into an ex-girlfriend of many years ago and our romance blossomed once again, resulting in us getting married in 2013. My move to the countryside inspired me to write The Diary of a Country Bumpkin which tells of my continuing dilemmas in dealing with the rigors of the countryside from the unexpectedly large number of pollens, fungal moulds and hay products waiting to attack the unsuspecting townie. I enjoy writing, see my play Dulce Et Decorum Est Pro Patria Mori on The Wireless Theatre Company, The Plays Wot I Wrote and The Battle of Barking Creek both available on and am very fond of classic cars so my ideal occupation would be acting in a film I had written set in the 1930s/40s, we live in hopes. I am delighted to say that since venturing to the countryside where space is not quite the premium it is in town, I have due to the availability of two double garages acquired more classic cars to form a small collection the pride of which are a 1947 Bentley Mk VI and a 2000 Bentley Arnage. My various blogs and websites are continually evolving and I’m sure that by following the appropriate links you will find something which will edify or amuse.

    You missed out America, also one of the worst polluters

  2. I think the UK is only 14% of the total world pollution so if we gave up everything it would still only be a tiny percentage saved.

  3. Have you considered pollution on a per capita basis? Imho a much better and more appropriate measure. If you do so you will see that China is far down the list and the likes of Australia, the US and the UK much higher up. I take your point on UK being 14% of total world pollution (I didn’t realise it was so high) but it certainty does not have 14% of the world’s population.

    Again imho all measures currently being taken to to curb pollution are pissing in the wind and will have minimal impact at best. The real solution is controlling population growth but no-one in authority wants to touch that. I suspect a food crisis will kill the world before climate change does.

    It amazes me how many of those pushing climate change have produced more than sufficient off-spring than necessary to replace themselves …. not to mention the futures generations that will no doubt be produced.
