On a related subject, today is the start of the UN climate change talks in Bali. Here are some links to do with this and other green issues:
1. Bali: make it count – Christian Aid
I agree with Christian Aid that we need to make significant reductions to our CO2 emissions. They are calling for an 80% reduction. You can send an e-mail via the Christian Aid website to Hilary Benn to make your feelings known. I suspect that an 80% reduction will mean big changes to the way we live our lives, but to my mind it is essential that we do it for the sake of the planet and particularly those who live in the poorer countries.
2. Sustrans Connect2
There’s a big television-lottery-vote thing happening, and one of the possible things to vote for is more cycle paths and walking paths in places that will make a real difference all over the UK. There is, if I understand correctly, fifty million pounds to go to the chosen scheme. Whilst I loathe and detest big television-lottery-vote things I am of the opinion that more cycle paths and walking paths will cure a reasonable percentage of societies ills. I’m not urging you to vote necessarily, but if you do vote it is my strongly held view that this is a very good thing.
3. Green Electricity Marketplace
This site will tell you whether the ‘green energy’ claims of the various electricity suppliers are a load of nonsense or not. I haven’t looked at it owing to busyness and apathy, but you can do better than me.
