The second blog coming after the horrific events in Paris cannot help but start sombrely. Crazed people want to provoke us all into panic and self-destruction by indiscriminate violence. As many have said that this week it is by carrying on in community that we can show that there is another way of peace and co-operation. So it is very likely that the enormously important UN Climate talks will go on and all those making their way including those going by foot or bike still will. The march in Paris on the 29th November has been cancelled but I expect there still to be interesting side events.
Something heartening now, via Gill a teacher working with 18 New Forest schools on Climate Change, I have been asked to take 500 postcards written by children on their concerns to Mr Cameron at Paris. There are a few below. I found the messages moving and it's hopeful that the next generation are so aware.
Gill remarked that the children's postcards were very animal-focussed (quite right. It is much about ecosystems where organisms large and small depend on each other) so a plan was hatched to take an Owl with me to blog back to the children. That is http://oswaldobikestoparis.blogspot.co.uk/
If you are local to Southampton please hook up via another blog http://www.dangerousideassouthampton.org.uk/blog/blog-of-ideas/. where you'll find a local demo pm on Sunday 29th, and an Climate Conversations event on 27th and more.
IT-wise it'd be nice to get encouragement or advice (priorite a droite, steady on with those croissants!). Just click on the 'comments' in glorious ochre and an inviting box will appear.
That's enough for this blog. The next I hope will be a bit on what exactly is happening at the summit.
