Cycling In Ceredigion

It's important to have clear and unambiguous signage on roads, cycle routes, and pavements, so that it is obvious who can go where. Let's go for a ride.

Mmm. This is strange. Three lanes. One has a cycle symbol.
Are the other two for pedestrians?
And why do they just end at nothing?

A bicycle. I can cycle here.

Food Impact

Let's have another post about food - we eat meals a number of times a day, so changes here can have a real impact on our health and the environment.

Fracking And Bridgend

Today we have a guest post from David Elston, Pirate Party Spokesperson for Wales and Bridgend election candidate. It focusses on a local environmental issue at Bridgend but the perspective applies to many areas of Wales and the UK - fossil fuel companies, supported by the Government, want to frack everywhere that would make them a profit.

I was the first candidate  to sign the Frack-Free promise with Greenpeace and took it upon myself to push the incumbent politicians on their stance on fracking. Ian Spiller, an ex-Conservative, now Independent local councillor responded to my question:

“What is the current situation and your stance regarding fracking in Merthyr Mawr and Ogmore?”

Mr Spiller's reply:

“I don't know enough about fracking so I am staying out of it.”

If only he was in some kind of elected position where it was his duty to know something about it and be involved!
