It’s estimated that by 2070 a third of the world’s population will live in inhabitable conditions. Well, they might be habitable, but only if we can work out how to live somewhere as hot as the Sahara.

And to stop the entire planet descending into an inferno of chaos, world leaders recently met up for a chinwag at COP26, which stands for Climate Change Conference of the Parties.
Britain’s own fearless leader took a flight instead of the more readily available, ecologically sound train. Meanwhile, America’s President flew over with a 26 vehicle-long motorcade, which he deployed in full effect for a 40 mile journey. I mean, why take one car when you can take 26?
