What the Green Movement Got Wrong

Wow! What a controversial title for a programme - "What the Green Movement Got Wrong"

The show is on Channel 4 tonight at 9.00pm so it's probably going to be well worth a watch, especially when the blurb on the info button says:
"A group of environmentalists are challenging the movement they helped to create, advocating radical solutions to climate change, including GM crops and nuclear energy."
What do you think about that? Watch the programme tonight on Channel 4 at 9.00pm and let us know...


Sky go Greener?

When I switched my Sky box on the other day (at the wall socket, of course) I was greeted with a message screen that I had not seen before.

The vivid green screen that turns to red with the glassy Sky logo and a chameleon perched atop it is accompanied by the narrative:

Remember. Go red. Be Greener.

We can all do our bit to be greener.

Watch "How Green is your Street"

A reminder to you all to watch "How Green is your Street" tonight at 9pm on BBC2. The quick synopsis says:
