I ended the week feeling optimistic. I’m usually optimistic but I had a few down moments in the middle of the week.
I’m not sure what the climate deal adds up to yet There are some quite optimistic views about it, but these things are a bit like George Osborne speeches – it’s best to wait a day or two, read the small print, and then decide.
However, I would like to point out, in the nicest possible way, and with some pride, that this blog has had a pretty good week.
Where else would you have heard about the Westminster Hall debate on toxic lead ammunition and had some analysis of the arguments – go on, where else?
And where else do you not only learn about the government’s plans to reduce your access to environmental justice, but you are also given advice on how to object to these plans?
And this was a lovely Guest Blog too – pointing you towards a radio programme that you might otherwise have missed.
Connected to our campaign against grouse shooting was this letter that seems to have gone down very well with so many of you.
And there was this post which connected flooding (which dominated the news) to climate change talks in Paris (which was mentioned a bit in the media) but also to unsustainable land use (which hardly, with the ever-shining exception of George Monbiot, was mentioned at all).
And you get a topical cartoon too – every week.
So, if you don’t mind, I’m going to take the rest of the day off. Is that OK?
