Thank you to all who took part in the Climate Change poll here at the Coffee House. We now have over 100 votes in and therefore have closed the poll. The top two are no surprise;
(1st ) more renewables/electric vehicle use
(2nd) targeting of big business.
It’s the next three that are interesting;
(3rd) introduce a personal carbon credits scheme.
(4th) tax cheap airfares so people travel less.
(5th) ban city cars with engines greater than 2000cc (2lt).
This shows I believe that voters are willing to see tough policy measures put in place by government to tackle the causes of climate change. The government would be wise to take note. Of course these poll results are on their way to No.10 and City Hall. We shall see if they bother to reply! Once again, thank you to all who took part.
There is an increasing amount of news out there, fed to us 24 hours a day. Unfortunately, less and less is 'investigative' journalism looking into the deeper reasons behind why things are happening. At The Coffee House we pick out some of the more controversial news stories for debate. Politics, economics, development and environment are our main focus. Grab a coffee (or tea!) and join us. Just don't be shy!
