this is for uk peeps only im afraid.
the british government is drawing up a climate change law..
committing us to reducing our co2 emmissions.
this is something i am helping friends of the earth uk campaign for.
(as well as working long hours with radiohead on these songs we've got which you may know about.)
if you got involved as well then thank you.. on behalf of us all...
(it is amazing what letters still can do.)
as is always the way..the bill at the moment is not quite what it should be, to say the least
as they seem to have forgotten about planes and ships..amongst other things.
there is a lot of column inches and internet space and conversation taking place about all this as you know on the subject of climate change.
and it all runs the risk of reaching saturation point. except that it is potentially the most terrifying problem the human world has ever had to face..
doing our bit.. flying less, etc etc (all those column inches) will not really have any effect unless the uk as a whole decides without excuses and backtracking that we want to really do something..
unless all of us accepts a law that we all must adhere to...
that has the desired effect rather than creating an illusion..
so if you can be arsed you can take part in saying what you think the bill should contain
this is a public consultation, as the government calls it
(except when it's about nuclear power..)
there is a page on the FOe website at the moment where you can do thisHERE!
radiohead starts up again having finally caught up on some sleep next week
i have a cd of what we;'ve been up to...
and you haven't.
i must listen to it, after taking an ear break
that always makes me nervous
hope you're well

When I was a child I caught a fleeting glimpse,
Out of the corner of my eye.
I turned to look but it was gone.
Stop China’s election to the Human Rights Council
found this while looking for something else.. it is now my screen saver
The most recent interview by children in South Africa, with a very cool lieutenant from the Manenburg police - check out what he has to say at the end about ' success '
Let's hope, like he says, that this does promote peace after such a long time.
Please sign an urgent action calling on restraint by China who have imposed the most horrendous crackdowns against monks at Kirti monastery and the Tibetan people in Ngaba town with the installation of hundreds of Paramilitary Armed Police, the closure of roads and the cutting off all communications to the outside world.
all nuclear explosions mapped from 1945-1998

IT CUTS BOTH WAYS .... THE ALTERNATIVES. This is a film exposing the alternatives to the government's austerity measures; it's about the positive; it's about revealing the many options we actually have at a time when we're being told there are no alternatives
Japanese Red Cross. Please donate if you can.
Those big drag nets that trawlers drop to the bottom of the ocean and decimate all life in their path?
And use radar while local fishermen loose their livelihoods? Just to fill empty shelves in Supermarkets? This lot are using lottery money internationally to stop all that.
Beautiful, and a little disturbing.
"is this what we're doing now?" - quick! Watch all episodes on iPlayer (for the next few days) if you're in the UK. Best british comedy in ages, so well played and written. Right up there with Curb Your Enthusiasm!

Tim Hunkin's inventions, under the pier at Southwold. I keep trying to go there but not quite making it. Maybe you'll have better luck. Go to Ipswich and turn right.
depression is not fussy about who it hits. and feeling isolated and powerless doesnt help especially when yer young and all. this site has lots of people sharing their experiences which is what us humans need in order to cope.
Great dance music site, lots of old articles and features, dj mixes
Found this extraordinary shop in Brighton last week. It's well worth a visit...
“The relationship between photographers and police could worsen next month when new laws are introduced that allow for the arrest - and imprisonment - of anyone who takes pictures of officers ‘likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism’.”
maybe it's about time the likes of Apple took responsibility for the manufacture of their products, as they're supposed to be so cutting edge.
As we're lifelong contributors to 'anthrophony' we're pretty culpable....but still, fascinating studies.
Look to the stars!
The Chestnut Tree Café. ...it was all right, everything was all right, the struggle was finished. He had won the victory over himself. He loved Big Brother.

Bhopal was the worst industrial disaster in history. A leak of methyl isocynate killed 20,000, injured millions more and Union Carbide... um, er...

As they say, we don't live in the Information Age, or even the Oil Age. We all have to eat. We live in the Agriculture Age.
Download books on to your Blackberry instead of using it to send email, 'browse' the 'web' or any of the other tedious business-related 'apps'. It'll still look like you're really really busy.
This is great if you should be doing something boring for someone else.
Man, I couldn't even read this, it looked so scary. But maybe you can? Maybe it has a happy ending?
Fascinating, horrifying, beautiful photography.
