Alfa Romeo Brera Coupé V6 - Jeremy Clarkson - Times Online

These days green activists try to quash reasoned debate on the environment by claiming that all of science, and all of the world’s experts, are on their side. But here’s an Inconvenient Truth. They aren’t.
There are many scientists, really properly good ones with really properly good qualifications, who maintain that man’s impact on the environment is minimal. There are even more who say we just don’t know.
Then you have Danish egghead Bjorn Lomborg, who studied a vast range of eco reports before presenting his findings in a book called the Skeptical Environmentalist. Let us take the Exxon Valdez tanker crash as an example. After it happened men with sandals came on the television to call the accident an environmental catastrophe. We saw shots of sticky guillemots in their death throes, and, of course, we knew it was all our fault for driving 4x4s and turning up the central heating whenever it gets a bit chilly.
But Lomborg presents an interesting fact that wasn’t covered by the news reports. Yes, 250,000 birds were killed by the spillage, but this is also the number killed each day in America from collisions with plate glass. In Britain alone 250,000 birds are killed every two days by domestic cats.

You must have a grasp on 'English humour' but this is my kind of car review.

You're probably not a cat person, CTT.

Anyone else seen what's going in China with their dog population?

Dog owners bite back in China’s great pet purge - Sunday Times - Times Online

In cities all over China, dog lovers have been outraged as police have swept through districts killing unlicensed dogs and confiscating others in a nationwide purge of the animals.

The aim is to rid the streets of strays and to fight rabies, which claimed 326 lives in China last month alone. It is the heavy-handed and arbitrary imposition of the rules which has the pet owners up in arms.

Yesterday’s protest was sparked by police raids on an area of luxury villas. According to the state news agency, Xinhua, the security forces discovered six “large unlicensed dogs” in the dragnet. It did not disclose their fate. Elsewhere, residents have reported seeing policemen beating dogs to death in the street.

Only dogs shorter than 14 inches are allowed. “Mastiffs, dobermans, saint bernards and great danes are banned,” Xinhua said, along with any dog considered “dangerous”.
