Bubble in the desert

A blog I started whilst on a GE "Bubble" assignment in Nevada. I'm back in Cambridge (UK) now but still miss the desert and my friends out there.

Climate change - CAFOD - A bit of a cheek!

I have an email today from CAFOD's Climate change campaign and it feels all wrong.

How can an organisation that opposes the use of condoms have a climate change campaign? HIV is killing thousands of people and human population is heading to 9 billion. Both problems can begin to be tackled by promoting the use of condoms and giving up on the CAFOD alternative, a plea for restraint.

I think it is time for the CAFOD folks to get their own house in order before trying to contribute to a debate on climate change.

Well it is simple.
Less people, less C02 production.

It's a bit twisted but I don't think it is all that simple.

The people that have the lowest carbon footprint of all are those in the countries where HIV is the most prevalent.

It would be desirable, or perhaps we could say moral, to do what we can to reduce HIV AND offer people alternatives that help stem population growth.
