  • Comment on: Climate change is too important for grandstanding

    That's nice Mr. baker Brown that you pour oil on the water. professional discourse is too important to descend to this level. Equally undermining those who step up, in a comments section, as is our right, is too insidious to let go.

  • Comment on: Zealots are the last people you should rely on in an emergency

    How fun that there is anger on this. What did happen to the eco-towns after government changed? What is happening with the garden villages? I think the answer is not much. Scaling the issue is important, insulating old buildings like retrofitting old towns can be problematic, but still important.

    The mitigation argument which I have heard so often in science/tech. gagged first world locations, is unjust, as it allows the poor and underdeveloped locations to suffer (even more). Consumption (high per capita carbon output including overseas activities) must lead, which means Britain, US, also Europe.
    So many feel extinction have done us a service. Along with Attenborough, we are (mostly), better informed. Someone mentioned lately to me that she doesn't buy coats, a little overweight, says she drives everywhere so what is the point?! For some reason now, huge numbers of our population seem to have chosen to drive tanks? Ignorance is shocking and it was time for this.

    Odd utilitarian description of a building containing only engineering and procurement aspects....

  • Comment on: Foster + Partners’ Tulip tower set for City of London approval

    The manipulation of 40,000 "state school children" to excuse this apparently passes as genuine concern for their em, education?! This is compounded by insulting their intelligence & initiative. Patronising & very strange...
