Earth Hour is Too Short - Bring on Climate Week

The Environment blog at the Guardian advises that, in Great Britain, "Climate Week is coming. If that means nothing to you, imagine a "supercharged national occasion that offers an annual renewal of our ambition and confidence to combat climate change"

It's a great story.  Climate Week has a big-time sponsor in RBS - which is apparently offending the, admittedly, easily offended because it's only been a little over 6 months since the Climate Day of Action opened with a protest of RBS and their complicity in funding the filthy black dirty oil.

The creator of Earth ... uhh ... Climate Week is quoted as defending RBS with:

"Looking specifically at RBS, the total portion of RBS loans which goes to the oil and gas industry makes up just 2.1% of their lending. And they have stated publicly that this percentage has been declining for the past three years. In fact their biggest single category of project finance is now wind technology."

No kidding.

Wind is the new black.
