Under Pressure

The bloke is currently attending the Planet Under Pressure conference in the London Excel centre in the Docklands. As part of its commitment to finding sustainable solutions to global resource problems, the 5000-odd conference delegates are not being served meat at any of the meals.

On the inaugural Monday, they were given chickpea and roast pepper sandwiches for lunch before breaking out into various sessions.

Five thousand people. Chickpeas. Roast peppers. Small meeting rooms. I'm sure this makes for an interesting scaled-down illustration of the effects of greenhouse gas emissions. Planet Under Pressure, indeed.
