Age of stupd, EON Academy, New coal in the UK, dodgy carbon accounting.

Trying to get my inbox back under control. About halfway there at the moment.

A few highlights:

1. The Age of Stupid: A film set in the future looking back and asking us why we made the decisions we made. Its a powerful concept, released soon, and creating lots of chatter.

The Age of Stupid: final trailer Feb 2009 from Age of Stupid on Vimeo.

The Age of Stupid is a 90-minute film about climate change, set in the future, which will have its world premiere in London on March 15th 2009 and then be released in UK cinemas on March 20th 2009, followed by other countries.

Oscar-nominated Pete Postlethwaite (In The Name of the Father, Brassed Off) stars as a man living alone in the devasted world of 2055, looking back at “archive” footage from 2007 and asking: why didn’t we stop climate change when we had the chance?

2. EON opens training academy. As this academy is based at a coal fired power plant, you have to ask if EON are really planning for the future or for a repeat of the past.

3. The Times has an interesting article on a proposed now IGCC coal plant next to Hatfield collary. This project recently got the go ahead, the inclusion of ccs in the project is not a procondition of construction.

4. The Guardian has a piece on the govornments carbon accounting, which apparently isnt squeeky clean.
