Another slew of meaningless figures.
Another round of unabashed news reports (and experts) telling us "what it all means" -- nothing of course.
And growth writ large, even if the figures are so low they're not worth stating.
And cast to one side, as it's been for so long, is nature. You know, the landscape we hold so dear; the oceans we seem to have fallen in love with -- thank you Sir David Attenborough; and the air we breathe.
Imagine if politicians took an oath to do no harm to nature whilst in office. Ha bloody ha you say.
But just imagine it. No more waste. A circular economy in more than name; and a champion of every living creature.
