    Iím not a massive fan of labour, and donít agree with nationalising the industries - but I very much like the idea of putting solar panels on council housing, and indeed, any government owned buildings - seems a really sensible thing to do to me.

    Cheaper heating for low wage individuals, more renewable energy, and the subsidies go back into the government - nothing there to dislike.

    Feigning concern, a Labour pastime, makes you feel doubtful right from the start. The expression he pulls is exactly like last time, got to assume he just hasn't a brain!

    Can understand why they want to do it,but if you disrupt the holiday people have saved all year for they're more likely to be pissed off with the protesters than on their side

    The issue is that we have been sayingh it for a decade with little forward movement.
    Remember, remember we are doing OK this November .

    Thousands of people walking through Brum city centre earlier for the protest - it was quite a sight. Didn't expect to see so many.

    I was perusing the apple app store for climate change related apps and one of the highest rated is called "inconvenient facts", which looks to be filled with a bunch of anti-science conservative talking points. seems a bit odd that people would learn random factoids through apps, but whatever floats your boat.

    not sure what this says about the situation at large, but there doesn't appear to be a comparable app for climate-science awareness. wonder if there was one, if it would even have an impact. maybe it could be searchable by topic, give high level easy to understand overviews, then break down into subsections adding more technical detail, refuting common incorrect talking points, and listing ways to affect change.

    I'm currently coming up with a topic for my senior capstone, maybe I'll make an app called Convenient Truths which debunks every talking point in their shitty app.

    I'm currently at a very large water conference in Chicago, I've been very impressed with the openess and plans to tackle the consequences of climate change in the US.

    well chicago would certainly know about plenty of different water problems between the lakes and river. and the invasive fish within them!

    man there are so many problems everywhere, it's hard to think/know about too many at once. makes me physically anxious.

    Tbf I'd be more worried about the shit load of untreated sewage flowing into the lakes first.

    So if wind power can be generated at £39.65 per MWh, why did we guarantee a strike price of £92.50 per MWh for Hinkley Point C ?

    desperation I think vis. of course, wind wasn't delivering this sort of price at the time and, as we know from cyber, there's no such thing as foresight in politics
    don't forget the project also gets treasury support under the UK guarantee scheme too and liability in respect of projected clean up will inevitably be capped potentially exposing UK taxpayers further.
    anyway, someone on the forum claimed that these 'vanity projects' would be stopped after Brexit

    Superb article from Matt Hill at Bloomberg on the impact of climate change, in particular the impact on those least able to deal with the consequences.

    Also nice to see so many familiar places - the Zambezi source is very close to where I used to live.

    And it has been looked at, found harmful and banned. That's the right way to do things.

    Big kick in the goolies for Corbyn as it was in his election pledge iirc? How to steal thunder 101. Labour haven't got off the ground yet in this election campaign

    Anyone else had an invitation to apply for the Citizen's Assembly On Climate Change. 30,000 households randomly selected to apply, apparently.

    £600 and free accommodation for taking part, which is nice.
