Absolutely terrifying

Interesting article about the effects of the temperature rising by different amounts. Rather worrying, and a bit heavy on the science (I have a terrible habit of tuning out when anyone starts mentioning science) but makes it clear what exactly climate change will entail, with different scenarios, etc. i.e. Home Counties’ climate being like Marrakech is atm! I can’t deal with the summer in Surrey as it is, and have threatened my parents with going home, if it’s as hot down south as it was last year. Don’t get me wrong, I like the summer, but I like being able to go outside and do things when the weather is nice, rather than have to sit around feeling all floppy.

Hopefully articles like this and the climate map I posted a while back offer a more ‘tangible’ way of thinking about the effects of climate change. ‘It’s going to be like this! Pay attention!’ Makes you wonder why governments and so many people don’t seem to be taking it very seriously, though…

Rob Hopkins, Transition Handbook

“Environmentalists have often been guilty of presenting people with a mental image of the world’s least desirable holiday destination – some seedy bed and breakfast near Torquay, with nylon sheets, cold tea and soggy toast – and expecting them to get excited about the prospect of NOT going there. The logic and the psychology are all wrong.”

Barbara Kingsolver, Animal, Vegetable, Miracle

"Food is that rare moral arena in which the ethical choice is generally the one more likely to make you groan with pleasure."

Carlo Petrini

"A gastronome who is not also an environmentalist is an idiot. An environmentalist who is not also a gastronome is, well, sad."

Sharon Astyk

"I am, of course, firmly opposed to consumerism and corporatism in all its forms, and I believe that we are deeply confused about material needs and wants. Now let me explain how books and yarn are totally different than the material things that other people want ;-)…."

Raj Patel, at Slow Food Nation

"Biofuels, which is the preposterous policy that we should grow food not to eat it but to set it on fire."
