Perhaps we should redefine the Conservative Party and call it the “Rapacious Party”; consuming the Earth’s natural resources and turning them into stuff they can sell, appears to be their goal. No concern about breathing or drinking or eating ever seems to come up in polite conversation. Perhaps they think they are leaving the rest of us on the blackened Earth…
