Forget carbon taxes, windmills and climate reparations. The BBC have got the answer!

    Straight out of an episode of Brass Eye. Brilliant. Wish I’d come up with that one.

    For those participants living in ‘UK-type’ climate, this variant certainly won’t:

    “Bikram Yoga is ideally practiced in a room heated to 40 °C (104 °F) …….”

    Prime Minister Narendra Modi may be on to something with this idea. A major issue with climate change is that “climate scientists” seem not to be very good with numbers (‘maths’, I think the Brits say). Srinivasa Ramanujan and others have shown India can produce quite amazing feats with numbers. Yoga must be the answer, so members of “the team” ought to start immediately.
    One problem is that the UN is involved. What could go wrong?

    Sorry to be a little uncouth, but if I was in that position in the photo above it might lead to more uncontrolled flatulence, in which case that wouldn’t help my carbon footprint at all.

    Maybe it’s not about yoga as it is generally understood by people. Yoga is not just about “postions”, is also about spiritual transformation and spiritual awakening. And yes, we really need to be AWAKE when we speak about climate change and about what’s happening to our home, the Earth. I try not to go to anther extreme and I want to be equilibrate, but honestly…… people should learn not to think only of themselves, a change of mentality (even in this field, of climate change activism) is imperative. They need to learn to care and to act in order to change the world and to help it recover. I think this is the message we should all understand and follow: be awake and act together!
