Here comes my latest post on the THINK site:
So, our Minister for the Environment, Svandís Svavarsdóttir, heads off to Copenhagen today for the summit.
About a month ago, I intercepted her at the National Assembly and asked if I could ask her a couple of questions – you know, about the Assembly results and, not least, the Copenhagen summit.
She was nice enough about it, being a laid-back kind of Left-Green person and all.
But not laid back enough to want to do an interview on the spot.
Preferred it if I would come to see her down at the Ministry. Gave me her card.
Sounded good to me. Decided I could maybe use my little Flip camera, get like a live statement kind of thing.
MEANWHILE GLOBAL WARMING IS HERE
In all its balmy glory. Today, almost in the middle of December, we had temps of around 10°C [49F] and boy, did it RAIN. And blow hard. And it was so dark that it felt like the day never really came. Allegedly sunrise was at 11.08 [coulda fooled me] and sunset at 3.32.
