Saving the global natural environment cheaper than 'War on Terror'
Estimated cost of WW2 =
Approx. $1.5 TN in 1945 [approx. $12 TN now]
Estimated cost of the current 'War on Terror' =
Approx. $7.4 TN
Estimated cost of fixing the global environment =
Approx. $200 BN [International Energy Agency]
To date, only $100 BN has been pledged by the world's governments and the longer this budget is neglected, the higher the eventual cost will be and, if you ever bought into the notion that David Cameron ever cared about the state of the environment, he has pledged  to spend £160 BN over ten years on upgrading the UK's nuclear submarine fleet [the fact that they let in water is a separate issue].
Summary: The human species will spend endless amounts of money on violent destruction while arguing about spending next to nothing to save themselves and every child, animal and plant [whose choices are never consider] on this planet. After a certain point, no amount of money will fix anything and the human species will then begin on its path to a rapid extinction therefore, it is better for the economy and for the survival of all humans to invest in fixing the environment immediately.
Politicians can not make the decisions necessary to save the global natural environment because they represent their donors who own polluting companies and who find it ever-more viable to actually continue to break laws put in place that are designed to protect the environment.

In 2013, a report commissioned by the UN into the activities of the world's 3,000 largest companies estimated that approx. 33% of profits would be lost if firms were forced to pay for use, loss and/or damage to the natural environment. The cost of damage caused by the world's top companies during 2008 alone is estimated at approx. $2.2 TN.
Voting for direct democracy outside a general election
It is up to us, the people [not the politicians] to use the power that we have always had, to choose to implement direct democracy as soon as possible.
This is not a protest campaign.
In accordance with Magna Carta Article 61 and with UN UDHR Article 21 and with all democratic principals up-held by the UN [which the UK is signed-up to], the People's Administration's Direct Democracy Twitter blog is a UN-sanctioned and legally recognised voting format for UK reform to direct democracy - even outside a general election.
Vote legitimately for a peaceful and structured UK reform to direct democracy now simply by following the People's Administration's Direct Democracy Twitter blog and when numbers reach a point of critical mass, we'll do the rest.
The People's Administration's constitution for reform to direct democracy and our voting protocols for implementing direct democracy have both been accepted by the UK Electoral Commission and the UN as legitimate. In a general election, the People's Administration DOES NOT have to field candidates to secure your vote on the ballot paper. Outside a general election, you can vote for a legitimate reform to direct democracy now by following @self_rule
