Wake Up:Walk Out

It's a Monday morning, perfect time to get the week off to a positive start.

Some local Bristol guys who are always doing positive work are the folks who run 'Be That Change'. "We are you. We're not big business, big religion or big charity. We’re just a small group of individuals as concerned as you about our future - things aren't making much sense any more."

That small group of individuals is calling for a modern day twist on direct action to ask the main UK political parties to commit to 42% carbon cuts.

If you think that protest marches don't cut it anymore, be one of millions to get the attention of MPs. Get invovled by texting WAKEUP to 82222 followed by name and postcode. Then Walk Out on Climate Change Day on April 26th. (see website details)
Get involved in the twitterstorm. Don't wait around for others to do it for you, be the change you want to see.  

 

Environmentalism and Climbing

I found this article on UKclimbing.com by keen climber, runner and environmental consultant Es Tresidder on the relationship between Climate change and Mountain sports.

Also tonight on Countryfile, BBC1, 7pm, John Craven is reporting on how eating less meat can contribute to saving our planet!

Ethics of eating meat byCaroline Stacey

''if the average UK household bought half as much meat, according to CIWF's calculations, carbon emissions would be cut by more than if we used our cars half as much. Is it really such a sacrifice to cut out a chop or a chicken breast here and there to decrease our animal intake to 500g of meat and 1 litre of milk or 100g of cheese per week, if it means, in the words of CIWF's D'Silva, "healthier people, happier animals and a healthier planet"?

Both articles make for very interesting reading.
