I was on holiday this week and went to visit E’s family in North Norfolk. It has big skies and lovely beaches and salt marshes.

Lots of binocular action. Involved lots of sitings of birds. Starting to recognise a few more. We saw seals which were amazingly cute and comical from a distance.

Learned a little about using solar panels for the home.

I read a fair bit about the IPCC Sixth Assessment Report, part 3. Laying out what needs to be done. In essense: renewable energy, electric vehicles, low-carbon technology. "This report is essentially a manifesto for ending the fossil fuel age". We have the knowledge and the means, it just needs putting in to action.

In tandem, read about and learned that the UK energy strategy is terrible. Focusing on nuclear, ignoring onshore wind, even pushing fossil fuels.

I didn’t read much about Ukraine while away, but on return see that it is getting increasingly grim and on course to escalate further.

I’ve been reading a bit more of Cybernetic Revolutionaries. Interesting to contrast the Chilean version of a planned economy to the Soviet one. Chilean seems much better.

Next week is still Easter school holidays, and also it’s E’s birthday, so spending time on that.
