Old news

And while I'm on the subject of Carmarthenshire County Council, I have today received my copy of their latest edition of Community News. There is comment elsewhere on the blatantly political attack which passes for an editorial, including a direct threat against local newspapers who dare to be unsycophantic in their approach.

However, it's the council's take on the idea of 'news' that struck me. Delivered today, the front page contains a story about events which people are encouraged to attend - on November 27th, December 4th, and December 12th. Really useful stuff. An inside page tells me about the consultation on closing care homes - which was scuppered two weeks ago.

Just because they use recycled paper, it doesn't mean that they need to recycle the content as well.

but John... It's Carmarthenshire County Councils Xmas Card to us all!! They just want us to know about ALL the good work they do in our name and with our money!!

We still need DIRECT ACTION at a Community level. Peak Oil is not currently referred to in ANY policy document (to date). How can we solve the problems when we aren't even discussing the causes? let alone mitigating the impacts.

We NEED practical applications of Sustainable Development led by the Third-Sector in partnership with Public Authorities and Private Businesses.

Post COP15 - we ALL must Act Local and Think Global. More Action is Needed by Everyone.

In a seasons greeting of Peace and Goodwill I wish us all a better future.

Blessed be.
