I’m a bit beat at the moment from a very interesting day. But I’ll pass on to you this that I read in the Times with amusement over a nice breakfast at the Queen Street Coffeehouse:

Forgotten to recycle any newspapers or tin cans recently? Feeling guilty because you neglected to carbon offset your flight to somewhere, anywhere, outside England this summer?

The Roman Catholic Church is at hand with a new line in “green confessions” to help eco-sinners to find forgiveness.

Dom Anthony Sutch, the Benedictine monk who resigned as head of Downside School to become a parish priest in Suffolk, will be at the county’s Waveney Greenpeace festival this weekend to hear eco-confessions in what is thought to be the first dedicated confessional booth of its kind.

Do read the rest here.

I wonder if Dom Sutch is any relation to Screaming Lord Sutch, the late leader of the Official Monster Raving Loony Party.
