Climate Change

I have just read Heat: How to Stop the Planet Burning by George Monbiot.

An essential read in my opinion, he very carefully points out the facts about climate change, proves that the "scientists" claiming there is doubt in the figures are paid schills of the big oil companies, then chapter by chapter explains what we can do about it.

This is connection with the study Gordon Brown is about to publish which shows how many trillions climate change will cost the global economy if NOT dealt with might finally wake up people to the need to do something.

If you have any doubts read this book, the guardian published three extracts all worth reading

Pundits who contest climate change should tell us who is paying them is a definate first stop, and theye are all archived to his web site anyway which is a better place to go read them as he has the space to include all his sources and references.

I'm off to try to work out how to insulate the back porch now, it lets far to much heat out as it's only one layer of breeze block with single glazing.
