Yorkshire This weekend I went to Yorkshire, for Saturday evensong at York Minster, and for Sunday service at Saltaire United Reformed Church in a World Heritage Site.

In unrelated news, my friend Chris Goodall’s calculation “If it’s only greenhouse gas emissions you are worried about, then it may be better to drive than to walk” got picked up by the Times on Saturday, and in turn by Rocketboom on Monday. Chris is the parliamentary candidate for the Green Party of England and Wales in the constituency Oxford West and Abingdon.

    Herman Thrust comments on the driving-and-walking article by focusing on the beef angle. I wish the article had contained some facts about less energy-intensive foodstuffs, though I suppose that would lessen the impact of the argument, or at least sidetrack it.

    The recent book by Chris Goodall, How to live a low-carbon life, gives detailed calculations of more options, including becoming vegetarian/vegan. Chris is vegetarian himself, if not vegan: I know because I invited him to dinner at St Cross College a couple of months ago.
