The Fabian Society publishes a report saying what the environmental movement has been saying for ages – that it’ll take more than recycling to stop the environmental disasters. Rather a change in people’s attitudes and behaviours – ie not driving down the road to pick up a pint of milk – and politicians taking serious long-term action. Although given Ken Livingstone’s hassles over trying to implement a £5 congestion charge in London, that seems unlikely.
And how does BBC News spin the story?
Still, got me reading it. And I’m probably about to almost give up the environmental battle – all my friends see me as slightly eccentric and weird for not buying a car, recycling etc. And Cardiff isn’t exactly geared up for non-car users. 🙁
