Big challenges

I have often wondered if the Freedom of Information could be applied to the air miles covered by people who choose to lecture me from global conferences about the environment and climate change. But I digress - the Guardian carries some useful coverage of "green" reaction to the budget.

The budget made some initial steps on a journey I think can only strengthen IF (?) we want to respond to global and climate challenges.

A bit like Sprorts Relief or charity gigs, the initial response is important, but not as telling as long term change in our lifestyles that we must root in action quickly.

One hell of a challenge in our democratic system with short term horizons.
