Didn't Pete say he was going? Something about hiding in the food delivery van as it goes into the US Embassy. I could be wrong!

If you meant me, you are indeed wrong. That day is the first session in my electric blues guitar master class, so I shall be physically and mentally drained, as will be anyone who had to sit and listen to me play.

You'll be mastering a nice, gentle melody for us then Pete, to send us all to sleep as the planet draws its last breath in the not too distant future.

Well, it must be Stephan then. Think he's trying to get past the US Embassy security dressed as an 'intelligent man'. That's bound to confuse those machine gun toting thugs.

Keith, are you going Sat?

P.S. You might want to send your answer via carrier pigeon, as I'm sure I just heard the metallic clatter of tiny robotic web scrawlers in the background, that have CIA written all over them. ;-)

I went along to the march on Saturday with about 25,000 others. Yet when the march against the war in Iraq had perhaps 2,500,000 there and 76,000 watched Manchester United beat Portsmouth it seems that public support for action on global warming has some way to go.

I agree.

War is a sudden rush to the head dilemma and therefore passions can rise quickly for a march. CC on the other hand is a slow burn/ slow death scenario and complex to understand. Besides, people are enjoying the warmer weather. They're hardly going to protest against that!

This is why I believe that there will never be a mass movement for change and therefore to bring positive changes about 'the few' are going to have to herd the masses into their tax and legislation pens to instill needed behavioural changes. Interesting at the moment UK political parties are scrambling over each other to do just that. We'll see if they hold their nerve as the masses begin to bay for their blood!
