Two important essays

May 31, 2007

Apologies for the lack of updates and inspiration recently. I’ll perhaps have some time over the weekend to write a post. In the meantime, if you have 20 minutes to spare I’d highly recommend two important new essays, one on climate change and one on UK housing policy. The former is probably the best thing I have ever read on the climate change issue, because it takes a very broad and even look at the issue, asking why it has come to dominate political discourse and inquiring into the links between broad social trends and scientific paradigms. The latter is a stinging indictment of the failure of New Labour to deliver one of the most basic requirements of life in modern society — access to affordable, decent housing for all who need it.

    Here is a quick response.

    I cannot comment on the specific book being reviewed, but it seems that the broader societal claims being made by the reviewer are themselves both appropriate and somewhat exaggerated.
