Politics and blogging

Dear readers,

Posts to Eco-living are going to become a little erratic over coming months as I'm standing for the Liberal Democrats in the UK's general election which is likely to be on May 6. If you want to follow my progress on that, I've just set up a Facebook campaign page which you are welcome to peruse or join as you see fit.

Obviously the environmental agenda is going to be at the top of my list.

All the best,

Dr Seuss' Copenhagen

Snow or no snow...

With every smart-alec comic and commentator making play that much of the UK and US eastern seaboard have been covered in snow since Copenhagen, there's a bit of a panic on in Vancouver before the Winter Olympics - you guessed it - no snow. Any jokes about that? Mention on the front page of the Express? Not even a little one? No?

I want to make all these characters write out 1000 times "I must not confuse weather with climate". That'd learn 'em.

UPDATE: Satellite readings show that last month was the warmest January on record (ie since records began in 1979).

Tiny CFLs

Compact fluorescent tubes are getting so, er, compact these days that we are finding it possible to replace the last few incandescents in the house, including these tiny ones in our cooker hood. Smart!
