I’ve watched a number of documentary stlye films – some better than others: An inconvenient truth, The Age of Stupid – and listened to the arguments and attempts to convince us that SOMETHING MUST BE DONE. OK, I’m convinced -and do what I can on a personal level to reduce, re-use, re-cycle, save energy etc. I enjoyed the TV series “Its not easy being green” – and would love a wind turbine, solar panels, a rainwater harvesting system, and even wouldn’t mind a composting toilet – tricky to see how some could fit into a tiny Victorian mid terrace, but ideas worth exploring (wish there were more grants available to subsidise and reward this sort of thing though).
Anyway, for those who still need to be convinced – a fascinating presentation from James Balog at TEDGlobal: Time-lapse proof of extreme ice loss. The description sums it up :
a network of time-lapse cameras recording glaciers receding at an alarming rate, some of the most vivid evidence yet of climate change.
