What a great example to us all!

Off he goes again this time with Camilla to Italy, speaking on climate change and about the “slow food” movement of local sourcing and organic production. Charlie, who knows far more more than scientists and climatologists, informed the Italian parliament that the world has ‘just 99 months’ to halt global warming or it will be too late.

Ack. The Sun

Ack. The Sun

He is a fine example to us all, we should all do what we can to reduce emissions and buy local food where possible.

Except that he hired a private jet to get there rather than at least take a scheduled flight, or travel by rail. The private jet was presumably at our expence.

God Won’t Help Us

The Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr. Rowan Williams, has said that God will not intervene to protect us from global warming and associated disasters even the “ultimate tragedy” of humanity gradually “choked, drowned, or starved by its own stupidity.”

Oh Dear! There was me relying on a divine breath of fresh air to blow away all the carbon dioxide and re-freeze theĀ  arctic and antarctic seas to lower the levels. Better have another think then!

Blogging

I was talking with someone today and mentioned that I did a political (in the broadest sense) blog but that I hadn’t added a post for a couple of weeks. On reflection this was because I had become somewhat despondent about politics in general, the global climate and ever increasing bites being taken from our hard won ‘freedoms’.

Let’s face it there are over 10million blogs out there and in general it is people who are already politically aware who, in the main, will look at any one of them. So what’s the point? Again on reflection, the point is that we must keep on expressing our views, left wing, right wing, or somewhere in the middle as just one of the ways to hone our minds, exchange ideas and philosophies but above all to draw our readers attention to threats on our horizon. True freedom and democracy can so easily be eroded through neglect and there are many who seeking power for themselves, will delight in silence.

If just one person reading just one blog starts to question an assumption then the hours spent writing blogs and contributing to others will have been enormously worthwhile.
