1. The Cyclotrope
    Created and animated by tim wheatley

    My New project, I'm currently drawing a picture for everyone I know.

    The cyclotrope is a cycle of 18 images that is spun at a certan speed so that the frame rate of the camera filming it gives the illusion of animation.

  2. The Zero Carbon Caravan will carry the message of action on climate change to the December United
    Nations climate negotiations in Copenhagen in a relay of individuals and organisations travelling across
    land and sea without using fossil fuels.
    The importance of these talks cannot be overstated; a successor to the Kyoto Protocol has to be
    agreed. With James Hansen, the world’s top climate scientist saying there is too much carbon in the
    atmosphere already, we need drastic reductions in our emissions of carbon dioxide right now.
    But there is hope. Paradoxically, the international financial crisis could help; if we take people off the
    dole to build a new green economy, by doing things like building wind turbines and insulating people’s
    houses we could end our dependence on fossil fuels. With the inauguration of a new President of the
    USA who has pledged to re-engage with the climate change issue, anything is possible.
    It is not as if we haven’t faced massive global challenges in the past and succeeded. Seventy years
    ago we faced the threat of fascism, but we all pulled together, and together we defeated it. The Second
    World War killed 45 million people. Climate change could easily kill ten times that many, and also bring
    about the next mass extinction of animals and plants.
    Politicians will only react if the public demand it, and with many of them not even convinced of the
    reality of anthropogenic climate change (an opinion poll a few months ago showed 60% thought there
    was some debate over it) it will be difficult to get the negotiators to come up with an agreement which is
    adequate for the challenge.
    That is where the Zero Carbon Caravancomes in. By showing it is possible to replace fossil fuels when
    travelling - the activity that is showing the greatest increase in their use currently - we can convince the
    public that a zero carbon lifestyle is possible. We must persuade them to demand that the negotiators
    come up with the right deal in Copenhagen.
    The Zero Carbon Caravan is not just about arriving at our destination. As we travel, we will be holding
    zero carbon conferences to explain why we need a zero carbon world, and to discuss the means of
    attaining it. We will also organise zero carbon concerts, using a minimal amount of renewable
    electricity and lots of audience participation to demonstrate that entertainment can be zero carbon too,
    and that the way to defeat climate change is by acting together.
    Engaging with the media will be crucial to what we are aiming to achieve, so that our message will
    spread far beyond the people who join the caravan and come to the conferences and concerts.
    Since the project began last summer we have already made great progress: we have an excellent new
    website (http://www.zerocarboncaravan.net) created by Alex Lockwood and Neil Bye which we will use to
    reach out to people all over the world and we have obtained a grant from Artists Project Earth, against
    very stiff competition. We have also recruited a number of advisors to help with the climate science and
    the media.
    The Zero Carbon Caravan is a very ambitious project run entirely by volunteers, and we need your
    help. We want to form a steering committee of eight or nine people to guide the project. So far we
    have myself, Chris Keene, as Coordinator and Spokesperson; Alex Lockwood who is responsible for
    Media and Communications: and Neil Bye as Web and Email manager.
    We need to fill the following positions – Fundraising Officer, Campaign Promotor, Caravan
    Operations Officer, Networks and Activist Coordinator, Recruitment Officer and Problem Solver.
    These roles could be done as a job share if you’re interested but a bit short of time. Please get in touch!
    Email me at chris.keene@zerocarboncaravan.net or phone 01603 614535.
    We also need people to act as advisors in the areas of climate science; climate solutions (climate
    policy, renewable energy, energy efficiency etc); green travel (cycling, sailing, canoeing etc) and media.
    Again, get in touch if interested.
    Finally, we are going to need money, so if you are interested in organising a benefit concert or other
    fundraising activity, please get in touch.
    If you know of anyone else who may be interested in either being on the steering committee, acting as
    an advisor, or raising money, please pass this email on to them, and drop a note to any relevant email
    lists you’re on.
    We haven’t yet made a definite decision on the route of the caravan, or caravans. We will be starting in
    the autumn, probably on the equinox, 21st September, although we may start a little earlier to give us
    ample time to get to Copenhagen by the beginning of December. It would be great to start at
    Machynlleth, the home of the Centre for Alternative Technology in mid Wales, as they produced the
    Zero Carbon Britain report in 2007 http://www.zerocarbonbritain.com and are currently working on an update,
    so the theme for the caravan would be ‘from Zero Carbon Britain to a Zero Carbon World’. I know
    several people won’t live on the route from Machynlleth to Copenhagen, so I think there may well be
    more than one caravan. We already have some possible offers to host meetings of the caravan in
    Holland and Germany.
    Please let me know where you live and if you could host a caravan in your town if we can arrange for
    one to visit.
