The impact of any agricultural activity on our carbon emissions is small compared to heavy industry. The attempts that have already been made, up to 2012, are admirable and will reward farmer and community alike with many environmental and even some energy benefits - and of course the porkers.

The miracle of hearing has come to a tiny fly that couldn’t possibly find its prey without a totally unique method of locating crickets. Business needs to start creating a packaged system that can economically help our deaf and hard-of-hearing to hear the real world again.

We have always used aids to help our farming, security or surveillance. Now, as more uses appear for intelligent robotics, will we sit back and lose our fantastic disappearing skills completely, or can we maintain some of the humanity that existed throughout our long history of creativity?

When we see countries developing a large renewable energy capacity, the whole earth can celebrate that there will be no more carbon emissions from some sources at least.

Indonesian and other forests in the region have disappeared recently at an ever-increasing rate. Apart from major climatic effects, the entrancing species of the forest will soon be gone forever, unless that awful trend can be reversed. We can start by considering wood importation.

Why not recycle in the same way as many motor manufacturers already do? We apparently have yet another dumping problem, highly illegal and causing health and safety problems in many countries. All because we are so greedy for the latest phone or tablet!
