Racing to normal after the pandemic

What do you see?

Rate this:

The race to ‘normal again’ is on – economic normal. The graphs have been pointing down a while and now the politicians are eager to see those lines heading north again. Some commentators point to the V effect, and to resume that upward tick is about pumping out more growth targets – more shovel-ready projects. Hopes for a rational re-think of how we pursue our lives [shops are open again and the TV news screens crowds gathering outside before the doors are thrown open, the pent-up frenzy palpable through the tube] gone in an instant. Yet I think I caught a news item [by caught I mean I spotted fleetingly a flash on my mobile of a news item seeking my attention; or I may have been browsing a news site and caught this ‘flash’] somewhere today about scientists emphasising we have ’50 years’ before climate reversal becomes untenable.
