The Berkeley Earth Project
has concluded that the Earth is definitely warming..
Set up after a bizarre last ditch campaign to question/sabotage the science of global warming in 2009 around 'climategate' this further undermines those who continue to tell us what we'd like to hear, that it ain't real and there's nothing to be done.
Will it draw a big black thick line under this guff so that we can finally and seriously move on and start to change the way our world functions????
here's some music...
1. Popgun by Martyn
2. Walla Illa (feat. Tunde Adebimpe) by Tinariwen
3. Digimon by Dj Diamond
4. Boudler Holder by Madvillian
5. Here Come the Warm Jets by Brian Eno
6. Magic Says by Dabrye
7. Cosmogony by Bjork
8. Bangin by Si Begg
9. look at stars (Machinedrum rmx) by SbtrkT
10. Stomp Yo feet (part1) by Theo Parrish
Chosen for and WARMLY dedicated to the brave souls PEACEFULLY sleeping on concrete OCCUPYing Wall Street and the City and elsewhere in the world,
attempting to express the anger and disgust most humans feel for the institutions that have failed to serve the needs of all but a few of the human beings of this planet.
Now yet those same institutions demand that we bail them out and in so doing sacrifice our own and our children's chances of a reasonable and safe financial future.
now i need to go and do something fluffy

Next month, on the 10th and 11th November, I will be doing a couple of shows of my solo material at The Pegasus Theatre in Oxford to mark the start of their 50th Anniversary. I'm a patron of the theatre and these shows are fundraisers to support the fantastic and really valuable work that Pegasus does in providing access to the creative arts for young people. It's a wonderfully intimate place to see a show, so if you fancy coming along, I'd love to see you there. Tickets cost £25 and are available from my store here:http://tickets.philipselway.com/Store/DisplayItems.html

Some ticket holders for this week's New York shows have chosen to re-sell one or both of their allocation on auction sites. Using a 2 ticket limit and will-call only access with ID, we have tried to ensure that more tickets go to the people who prefer to see the show than to cheat fellow fans with re-selling tickets at exorbitant prices.
For those of you who have to pay over the face value of the ticket, PLEASE make sure that you are certain you can get into the show before parting with your money. A ticket is only valid with its matching credit card details and the ID of the purchaser, after which the ticket holder will be escorted straight through.
On a lighter note, we played on The Colbert Report last night. It was funny.
Hope this link works where you are: http://www.colbertnation.com/

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.

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.

“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 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.
