It's been a while...

It has been a while since I have posted on this blog and a lot has happened...
The latest IPCC report is due out on Friday
UKIP have shown their pro-fracking freakism, Russia is pushing for geoengineeering to be looked at as response to climate change, while imprisoning Greenpeace activists, from the Arctic Sunrise.  Phillip Berry a founder of the Sierra Club and long term environmental activist has died.
The badger cull has started in the UK, and more locally for me, offshore drilling seems to be booming, while there has been a ruling against the Viking windfarm, over failure to take "engage" with the Wild Birds Directive 2009. 
Interestingly, Mary Robinson, UN Comissioner on Human Rights is calling on governments to face the fact that fossil fuels must be left in the ground, with oil and gas being so profitable (although BP's ongoing liability for Deep Water Horizon may have an impact) I cannot imagine her call being heeded.
