Where is the Rest of the Universe?

As you may or may not know 96% of the Universe is "missing". Please kindly check your cupboards to see if you are unwittingly hiding some of it. Thank you!OK so scientists can't explain why the Universe is expanding at an accelerating rate rather than slowing down as you would expect, so they have come up with the idea of dark matter and dark energy to explain it.There's no proof of either, but it's a nice idea and helps justify spending billions on Hadron Colliders that might blow us all up,…See More

Copenhagen - Success or Failure?

Having been in Copenhagen for some of the COP15 process over the last two weeks and watching like everyone else the - will they, won't they - charade played out by the world's leaders one is forced to ask the question - did the Conference end in abject failure or was it in fact a success?It is hard to see the Conference as being any kind of success, but then that depends on how we define success and what eyes we use to look at the gathering with.Yes, of course we all hoped that the world's…See More

Are We Missing the Point Here?

OK so next week COP15 kicks off in Copenhagen and although Barack Obama is now attending the signs are that no binding agreements are going to be reached about lowering emissions. I hope I am wrong but the signs aren't looking great at the moment. So will it be another bout of rhetoric, protectionism, silo mentalities, reality denials and posturing?Well maybe, because I am going for some of it so look out for me there! :)See:…See More

UK Plays Ostrich

In the last few weeks the UK Government has announced that it has given the green light for 10 more nuclear stations to be built to help cover energy supply over the next 30 to 50 years and help lower its CO2 emissions. Or so they say.Well done team, you have once again shown impeccable leadership where denial of the realities is concerned.Firstly, the building nuclear power stations doesn't lower CO2 emissions because if one looks at the the amount of CO2 emissions incurred in building the…See More

Fast Food Ain't that Fast!

Feeling peckish? Don't fancy cooking something yourself, but rather prefer to pop out and get some fast food?Well if so, best not go to the local fast food joint because the food they provide there just isn't that fast in all honesty.Oh sure they may cook it up for your right there and then or maybe it's even already there for you pre-prepared for you and all you have to do is drive in, place your order, pick it up and pay for it and off you go.Well what can be faster than that you might…See More

How Much Does Water Cost?

One of the things that gives a false impression about the true costs of things is that often the price of natural resources is not included in the bottom line. As an example, the use of water in producing a beef burger. Water is regarded as a free resource, which is just as well because it takes over 1000 litres of water to produce one beef burger by the time it has gone through the food chain. Imagine if you had to pay £1 for every litre of water within the food chain according to how much…See More
