    We can try limit our consumption and preproduction as long as we are here though as a species. The original poster's one I find a bit so so in that regard lol.

    Sorry about that, Bill. The older I get, the more pessimistic I become. I should do more playing.

    Here you go.


    "A consensus was reached at the 70th meeting of the CITES Standing Committee, which took place in Sochi, Russia last week, which could see musical instruments finally exempted from the CITES II environmental safeguards.

    The Committee will exempt “finished musical instruments”, “finished musical instrument parts” and “finished musical instrument accessories” from its licensing requirements, although the exact definition of those terms will be defined in a proposal document prepared in cooperation with the EU.

    If successful the proposal could be adopted at the next CITES meeting in May 2019 and pass into law by September next year.

    One compliance matter discussed by the Committee concerned exports of African rosewood from Nigeria. Since the beginning of 2018, Nigeria has authorised over 180,000 m3 of the timber to China and Vietnam, without first making sure that these exports will not threaten the survival of the species. The Committee decided to recommend suspension of commercial trade in this timber species until Nigeria has made a non-detriment finding for the species in the country." Lifted from MMR

    That’s pretty much my take on things too, rather depressing but seemingly inevitable. I’ve no idea how the resolution will come but we’ve got pretty good at managing disease so I’m expecting the ‘Grim Reaper’ to use a different means of population control. You don’t have to look very far to find war and conflict going on in some place, lots of people and governments competing for scarce resources. The problems with greed, envy, thoughtless lifestyles and over population seem, to me, to be rooted within human nature (which isn’t going to change anytime soon). My confidence in politicians is generally weak too, some are idealists who really just don’t understand how life actually does work in practice, some appear to be in it for the money and others dam those in Goverment regardless of their actions for the simple reason that someone else (rather than them) is in power.

    Good news about Cities though.
