It´s so simple. Why is everyone making such a fuss when Caroline Lucas knows exactly what we need to do to solve climate change and assuage Gaia?
Yet not far away a very different kind of protest sprang up, as a flash mob of climate campers closed a street for 12 hours in order to highlight what can be achieved if we focus creatively on solutions, as well as problems.
Bunting, spring flowers, a farmer’s market stall selling cake and vegetables, workshops and a pedal powered sound system. These all combined to ensure that the camp set up outside the carbon exchange on Bishopsgate was an example of workable alternatives to the capitalism and environmental destruction that have got us into our current economic and ecological mess.
Job done, see?
Why can´t people see how easy it all is?
