The Observer got some flak today by way of feedback from some of its readers for its article ‘After the Deluge, Let’s have Action‘. One action it suggests should be undertaken is the provision of “bigger drains”. Somehow the Flash advertisement for the newspaper’s travel shop, promoting air travel, seems more worthy of attention.Environmental issues tend to be hidden away as much as possible, year after year, decade after decade, until they become unavoidable – by which point, putting your used copies of The Observer and empty packets of Shreddies in a separate collection box from your other waste might be a little late in the day, and not really a convincing example of taking the bull by the horns in “our eagerness to deal with climate change”.
