The Results Are In! (Part 2 - Top Green Bloggers)

Yes, the long awaited list is complete, and G.O.O. is pleased to have come in at number 26, "Son of Moto" template and all!
Well done and thanks to Jim, who has put a lot of work into this via his blog, Daily (Maybe)
The Top 100 UK Green Bloggers list includes some great sites, and some interesting new ones that I have not come across before. Some of them may even find their way onto my Links column. Jim is allowing a public poll on the Top 10 which is currently topped by Kitchen Witch, which was a new one to me, and the more familiar blogs of Peter Tatchell and George Monbiot.

Elsewhere today there is news of Brian Haw celebrating 200 days of anti-war protest outside the British Parliament. Haw will be joined by Green Party London Assembly Member Jenny Jones and would-be Labour leadership contender John McDonnell MP.

Brian's landmark date comes at the time when the Cabinet is due to address the issue of Trident nuclear missile replacement with Blair putting forward the idea of a White Paper on the subject. This is in line with the usual New Labour approach of pre-empting decisions, as Kate Hudson of CND points out that a Green Paper would be a more open discussion tool. CND recently launched their own "alternative White Paper" on the subject supported by a number of Labour and other parties MPs.
Richard Norton-Taylor has an article commenting on the issue in the Guardian today. The chorus of voices demanding a proper debate on this dangerous and expensive white elephant grows louder.

Hello fellow Green Blogger,

Over at www.environmentdebate.blogspot.com we have a poll running that we would like you to take part in if you wish.

The question runs; ‘What do you think is the best way to tackle climate change?

Hope you have time to give your views on this very important issue.

:-)
