    The Green List

    by Katharine Thompson

    Interesting supplement in today’s Guardian – The Green List – takes a look at subjects such as carbon trading, transport and how government and business are responding (or not) to environmental issues.

    We’ve also tagged this report on del.icio.us , or if you’d prefer to read off the page rather than off the screen, a copy is now in the ET reports collection on level 4 of the library, in the box marked ‘Odds and Sods’.

    100% car free Olympics?

    by Katharine Thompson

    Start walking now! The Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) have just announced their plans to make the London 2012 games car free by getting all spectators to the venues by public transport, by bicycle, or on foot.

    The draft consultation plan is available at the London2012 website.

    As it’s rare that a week passes without me claiming my Tube fare back from Transport for London due to delays, I wish them the very best of luck!
