The Senate is now considering increasing government subsidies for corn growers to produce more ethanol. If we produce enough ethanol we can postpone our next invasion of a Middle Eastern country for two to three years.
The Transition Buxton Steering group was, like most Transition intiative steering groups, a temporary thing. The aim was for the various sub-groups (food, transport, energy etc.) to fledge, to grow and to develop their own meaningful projects. This is now starting to happen, and the original Steering Group was therefore dissolved at the first AGM in August 2010. We are confident that the enthusiasm generated by a few successful projects will create a tidal wave of activity, as the people of Buxton all join in, and sweep the town to a bright, resilient future. Yo!
At Jean's this time.
