What we learned this week

No-Fly Climate Sci is a challenge to the scientific community to practice what they preach and fly less.

Most people in Britain oppose fracking, but are still getting their energy from companies that are investing in it, say Ecotricity in their current campaign. I know some people will be cynical about it, but I like the way Ecotricity combine activism and marketing.

Speaking of gas, this man has invented a bio-gas powered street light that runs on dog poo.

Cambridge is Britain’s most unequal city – one of a number of interesting findings in this report from the Centre for Cities.

This week I’ve been reading The Globe and Mail, which has been a perfectly concise summary of world news for a half-term week when I haven’t had much time. Next week I will be getting my news from Israel’s oldest newspaper Haaretz.
