Welcome to the world of the Vincent D'Onofrio obsessed - and a bit of real life thrown in.

Climate Camp

In 1381, Wat Tyler led the Peasants' Revolt towards London, assembling at Blackheath before demanding to meet the king. It all ended badly. But there remains a street called Wat Tyler Road along the edge of the Heath. This is the site of the current Climate Camp, and as it's just a mile or so up the hill from where I live, I'm hoping to get up there for a quick look round over the next day or two.

Meanwhile, here's a little YouTube video I found.

While I admire their resolve to teach us all how to live differently,some of their ideas aren't very practical..especially if you live on a modern estate. Can just imagine what would happen if I installed an eco-loo in the garden..and solar panels are way out of our price range. However, we don't do too badly..we don't own a car, we recycle and we compost :-)

Enjoy your visit..sorry for the long comment!
