The occasional visitor to these pages may recall that last year, we installed a solar hot water system in our house in Cirencester. It’s worked brilliantly, meaning we didn’t need to use any gas at all through the summer and well into the autumn – admittedly helped by switching the Aga off as well (a beast […]Read More Will We Save the World?
For those readers of this modest blog interested in perhaps the best climate change discussion out there on the web, I’d like to recommend Climate Progress.org. They have a fascinating and frighteningly relevant series of postings currently up there on the overlap between climate change and human population – including a link to the clearest […]Read More The Coming Climate Change Panic
With Copenhagen now over, I’ve been wondering how, briefly, to capture here in words and an appropriate image my own increasingly clear understanding, which the climate summit has served only to reinforce, that the game is over.

As you may have read elsewhere on my site, I have […]Read More Working with therapists on facing the worst

Certainly no more than 25), is a bit like Coming Out. But at an inspiring conference of politically-engaged psychotherapists in Glasgow this week, speaking that truth as I see it was […]Read More Glasgow Therapists’ Conference Wakes Up to Climate Change
Oh dear. We’ve just installed solar water heating, as I mentioned a couple of weeks ago, and it’s working brilliantly. Completely, so far, doing away with the need for any additional gas water heating. But, what’s the first thing the neighbours said when we first encountered them this week after the installation?Read More People Just Aren’t Interested
