Anyway I got a couple of hours of productive effort up there. But while I was procrastinating I came across two interesting net nuggets. The first is this story from the Daily Mail. Could it be true? It's terrible! There was I, being all smug, thinking that saving a few watts here & there is an eco-help and then this. A couple of google searches generates the same amount of CO2 as a boiling a kettle! I do about 100 a day! It's a disaster. Now what do I do? Back to books I guess.
The second, which cheered me up a little after the first, was this staggering photograph of Saturn by the
Cassini spacecraft. Glorious. For all our faults, we can achieve some amazing things can't we? Earth is in the photo too! Home sweet home. Let's hope that 2009 is the year that we collectively agree to make it sustainably habitable for all of us.
But will it mean less surfing? Oh boy...
