I Love Brisbane

This evening i was going to write about food miles. You'll have to wait for that, because i was interrupted by a phone survey by Brisbane Council. It started fairly standard ... "How do you rate the council on a scale of 1-5?"

Then.. "i'd like to ask you about climate change". Now she had my full attention!! After some inane questions about lightbulbs etc, she asked what i thought council could do to reduce greenhouse emissions. Suffice to say, the entire call went for about an hour.

She also asked about the Greenheart Citysmart programme. "Has it helped you take positive actions?". I had to say no, because it's only suggesting things that i've already done. Changing bulbs is great but council needs to think bigger if it wants to meet the reduction targets.
