Lobbying firm sends ant-climate change bill letters from "old peole's homes".
After last week's news that big oil are against a better environment it seems that the lobbyists who oppose any moves to limit climate change (incase it dents the profits of big business) have stooped to a new low point.
As if you didn't already know it, big oil are against safeguarding the environment.
Is that alarmist? Propagandist? Or is it just another big lie because all of us environmentalists "hate cars" and are suckered by "peak oil" which is all a big scam to give governments more control over our lives?
Actually, big oil railing against the environment is totally true, and here's the proof:
It was interesting to hear Hilary Benn, the Environment Secretary, saying yesterday that we need a "radical rethink" on food policy in this country.
For many years those who think green have identified the world's population growth, habit & climate change and a loss of biodiversity, to name a few, as the factors that would affect food production.
Friends, Britons, countrymen... lend me your ears.
Today, Friday 10th July 2009, is supposedly Green Britain Day. The concept has been thought up by French nuclear energy giants EDF.

Have you seen those green union flags doing the rounds? On the 10th June this tweet came from @ecotricity on twitter:
The Green Britain flag you may have seen on the TV etc is not ours! EDF the French nuclear power company has stolen it!
The very next day I spotted one of the green union flags in the nearby town of Aldershot on a billboard in the High Street. This street advertising was part of a campaign which has been gathering momentum both online and on TV with what seems like a huge campaign.
GM's Hummer, the 2.5 ton 12 MPG Ego Carrier, has long been an icon.
On the one hand it has been a "status" symbol - an extra 2,700 kg of perceived self-importance, a sign of machismo, being unstoppable, oozing with attitude, couldn't-care-less gas-guzzling excess and having a tiny penis.
On the other hand the Hummer has represented everything worthy of contempt - all of the above, the death to other drivers in a road traffic accidents and the inspiration behind FUH2.
You drive your car less, you cycle more, recycle more, use less packaging, re-use your grocery bags, use low-powered bulbs, switch to wind-powered electricity and remember to switch everything off when you go to bed or leave the house.
After thumbing through the last ever printed edition of The Ecologist the other day there was a mention of the book A Blueprint for Survival, written in 1972 by the then editor of The Ecologist, Edward Goldsmith.
