Our Green Government

I’m not sure that I’ll really be observing the World Wildlife Fund  ‘Earth Hour‘ tomorrow evening, although the only light I’ll need will be that from my computer screen as I frantically process the hundreds if not thousands of image files I will have made earlier in the day. Although since their web page wants you to take pictures and videos or write blog posts and tweet during the hour I guess that’s OK with them.

However I don’t think I’ll bother with that 1 hour movie of me struggling with Lightroom, even though it would have far too much action in it for the late Andy Warhol.

But it was mildly amusing to learn from Iain Dales Diary that perhaps to celebrate the event with the Government’s typical concern for Green issues that while they have asked everyone in Parliament to switch off all non-essential internal lights when they leave for the weekend and that non-essential floodlighting will be extinguished for Earth Hour itself, they also  sent round a e-mail to all staff telling them to ensure that every computer in the place is left switched on for the whole weekend.

T5 Flashmob at Heathrow

It is rather like saying that Climate Change is the most important issue facing us, then announcing that they are going to build another runway at Heathrow.
