Keeping up with the news

I’ve come across some great stories online in the past few days. There was a lengthy and clever article about how much we could learn about city planning by studying ways that insects organise their communities.

I’ve come across some great stories online in the past few days. There  was a lengthy and clever article about how much we could learn about city planning by studying ways that insects organise their communities.

There was a really cheering piece (how often can we say that) about how the Yorkshire town of Pickering was almost unscathed in the recent floods because of a decision to work with rather than against nature.

And there was the plain daft but oh so revealing story about how a town in the US is resisting solar power because, among other things, or worries about sucking energy out of the sun

What all three stories have in common is that they came from the same source, not a news service but an individual, who I follow on Twitter and with whom I am friends on Facebook. He is Dusty Gedge, green roofs pioneer and campaigner, who seems to spend an inordinate amount of time trawling the web so that the rest of us don’t have to. I recommend following him on twitter (@greenroofsuk). His Facebook feed is very similar, with the addition of numerous photos of birds – he came to green roofs through his enthusiasm as a birdwatcher. Even if birds aren’t your thing, they look pretty.
