Wind reps. are full of hot air! (fossilised)

How sure are you that your nation is following the best energy advice from the recognised experts? Lobbying has spread recently to become a load of cobblers! (lies)

J’aime la belle Paris, mais sacre bleu!

J’aime la belle Paris, mais sacre bleu!

Are we picking on Paris? No, this is a simple look at the lively discussion surrounding wood fires and vehicular transport in a typical city these days. Two people arguing about their responsibilities towards their capital and its people. This is the way we need to approach city life - by reason, not by dictate.

How much can we use the disabled to usher in new technology and to fill a great gap in society? To fulfil their hopes and improve economies in every nation, many more people can be employed despite any negative attitudes. The result will be a fairer society and less stress for all of us who fear disease or accident that could, at the moment, end our working lives.

South American problems/climate change in Lima today

Posted Mon, 01 Dec 2014 11:15:00 GMT by Paul Robinson

Some biodiversity with macaws in the inclusive story and a lovely woolly alpaca here, but the emphasis in South America is on Lima and the key decisions that should be made there this week. Optimism is reported, but how can we be optimistic when there is so much to do, in so many regions, as global warming provides us all with floods, sudden storms and worse !

After such a long time, the Aral Sea area is about to be rehabilitated, but the large area of the 4th largest inland sea in the world will never be returned to its natural watery state. The partners and donors are rewarding the patience and planning of Uzbekistan’s President Islam Karimov and his First Deputy Prime Minister Rustam Azimov.

A future for the Aral Sea is hopefully assured.

Climate: what does the UN want?

Climate: what does the UN want?

Posted Mon, 03 Nov 2014 09:15:00 GMT by Paul Robinson

The UN wants big changes, which it will find difficult to implement. We all agree however with the basic need to follow the logical path towards lowering temperatures and climate risks. There is only one group stopping this inevitable progress, a bit like those who often prevented the progress of the industrial revolution. They did not succeed, so let us all make sure our “industrial evolution for the future” succeeds quickly! The alternatives are non-existent.

How to celebrate UN Day? We suggest it is entirely up to you. Sit down and read uplifting material; worry about progress in one part of the world; get up and volunteer in any way you think right; object to one aspect of the organisation just as everybody else seems to do; whatever --- enjoy the chance it gives you to be universal!

Global Warming’s final warning.

Global Warming’s final warning.

Posted Mon, 15 Sep 2014 11:59:00 GMT by JW Dowey

The NYC Climate Summit is building up pressure. This press release is a significant document, alongside all the crushing evidence of an out-of-control climate, involving many prominent people who want the politicians to make their own impact. It’s from 160 leading environmentalists from 44 countries, and, believe me, we all approve of the action.

WMO report on more pollution

WMO report on more pollution

Posted Wed, 10 Sep 2014 07:42:01 GMT by JW Dowey

When can we expect a conference to make headway against the mass of polluters and their investment in fossil fuels. So far, only threats of storm and drought seem to have had any effect. Maybe the earth itself will persuade us to finally change our ways as we wait for the next disastrous extreme weather event. Hopefully, we can use the next conference to ''make waves'' as the evidence becomes overwhelming.

Vaccines for badgers (against bTB)

Vaccines for badgers (against bTB)

Posted Fri, 22 Aug 2014 10:39:42 GMT by JW Dowey

The first attempt at large scale vaccination of badgers in the UK could finally lay to rest the hoary old argument about whether cattle are often infected with bTB by this particular animal. Then again, it could simply spread the discussion to other countries and to other valid points in the same way as perturbation causes the badgers to flee.
