Welcome to another round up!
First of all a date for your diaries: the famous Transition Farnham Christmas Party will be held on Monday 14 December, at 7 Coleson Hill Road.
You are all invited, and as before, please bring a little something to share, and a good time will be had by all. (7:30pm till late…)
The report from the eco-house visit in Elstead has now been published to the website. I hear it was a fantastic experience and I am sorry that I missed it.
A reminder, I think, that low-carbon living can actually be very comfortable and lovely indeed! Something for us all to aspire to.
Meanwhile you might also want to read what President Nasheed of the Maldives had to say about low carbon living this week. Most of his country is less than a metre above sea level, so he’s a big fan too! And if your grandchildren would like to be able to go on holiday to the Maldives one day, you can sign a petition to influence Copenhagen here.
How can we achieve that sustainable low carbon economy? Well, there’s a video on the blog this week in which David Mackay talks about how to achieve “Sustainable energy without the hot air.”
And there’s a review of an article here, on whether smart meters are such a smart idea.
There’s also a review of an article here that talks about the latest on peak oil — apparently some official at the International Energy Authority has let slip that they have deliberately been telling us that our oil reserves are bigger than they actually are, afraid we might panic!
Finally, Monday’s meeting (held for the first time at 40 Degreez) almost turned into a mini-farmer’s market this week, with home grown eggs, apple juice and pear juice changing hands.
It seems Paul’s juicing business is taking off after less than a year, so that is good news for us all.
And we also had one new member turn up this week, and from America, don’t you know! Ruth has been reading our newsletter for half a year now and finally took the plunge to join in. So if you are one of the 101 people who read this newsletter, why don’t you come along too — at least to the Christmas Party on the 14th!
Do have a great weekend,
From all of us at Transition Farnham.
