The Solution Is Simple…

Just had to post, 6 year old Dylan Hughes is launching a campaign aimed at all the dead important people flying to the United Nations Climate Change Conference starting in Bali next week.

Dylan’s message is simple; so simple that he’s called it http://www.thesolutionissimple.org. He even managed to raise the money for the campaign website and national newspaper advert’s from enoughsenough.org

Dylan says, ‘Sorting out climate change is as easy as one, two, three. Why take weeks to talk about it when we just need to get on and do it. In less than 10 years it will be too late. Everything could die if we don’t act mega-quick’.

Ahead of Bali, Gordon Brown can be seen trying to charm big business at the CBI with claims that he won’t ‘shirk’ decisions like new runways for the UK’s fastest rising source of greenhouse gas emissions, aviation.

Dylan says, ‘If Mr Brown doesn’t act well-big on climate change now, me and my friends are going to get him’.

Dylan continues, ‘Mr Brown is always saying big things, but he never actually does anything really good or quick enough. Most of the stuff He wants to get done quickly is going to make things worse, not better. Like new runways for planes which are really bad for the climate. If he does the three things in my campaign quickly, he really will be a world leader, not a donkey’.

Local Food… Local People… Online

local.gif

This a digital twist to the traditional farmers market. The site LocalFoodshop.co.uk helps customers find locally produced food and drink.

The site says:

The aim for Localfoodshop is to help you to identify your local suppliers of quality, fresh, seasonal produce. You buy direct, keeping your money in the local economy and supporting local farmers and artisan producers.

At Localfoodshop, 93% of the sale value goes straight to the producer. Compare this to the supermarkets! And the remaining 7% supports the social enterprise which runs the site, re-investing any profits back into the local food sector.

This looks like another step in the right direction whereby people can find things locally and so help local commerce and reduce the burden on the environment…
