This landed in my inbox this morning. I won’t say where from. It should be of interest to anyone mobilising around the climate focus of the G8, or working on exposing the false ‘solutions’ coming out of the Kyoto Protocol. It’s sick to see so much of the carbon trading / clean development mechanism rubbish now being echoed by the G8 at a time when we need real leadership and socially just solutions to climate change.

It can get pretty stressful at times, especially when you realise the fight for Climate Justice means you’re up against some of the biggest, most powerful corporations on the planet. But it’s OK, see, Travelocity.co.uk have the answer. How kind of them to deliver such wisdom straight to my inbox…
It’s been long overdue. On the train back from San Francisco I finished the redesign of the Rising Tide website. Along side a standards-based redesign of the original site structure, using a fluid 3 column css-layout, I’ve built the site around Drupal, an open-source Content Management System that alows for collaborative publishing rather like Indymedia (actually, Drupal is used by a number of Indymedia sites.) Hopefully that should go some way to redeeming me for routinely failing to get London Rising Tide‘s events up on the Rising Tide UK site in time!
4 days, 3 trains, thousands of miles of amazing North American countryside whistling past… I’m travelling overland from Toronto, Canada, to San Fransisco, USA, for a three-day Energy Action meeting next weekend. Why? Because it’s possible. Because it’s cheaper than flying. Because the alternative was 6 flights for the round trip, and because at some point we have to start leading by example, realise that stopping climate change means slowing down a bit, and take the leisurely option for our long-distance travel. I can’t wait.
