  1. Report this morning that the anti-fracking film, which apparently uses footage of Schindler’s List overdubbed with Tina Rothbury’s voice, has been roundly condemned, including by Tina herself. It seems that the film may have wished to parallel treatment of protesters with the holocaust. Let’s hope it’s buried and left in the ground. I think I have seen similar sentiments expressed elsewhere.

  2. Some good news ….the UK’s CO2 emissions dropped nearly 5% last year compared with the year before, we are setting a good example by closing coal fired stations ahead of schedule. Looks like this summer will show the lowest CO2 emissions on record from electricity generation….. if only we could stop Germany from burning brown coal.
