Stop Bush drive to climate chaos
Leaving Grosvenor Square
Save our climate
Deforestation for biofuels
We stuff ourselves and the poor get stuffed
We are choking on your fumes
Burn the bosses, not the planet
It's getting hot in here
Cheap flights cost the earth
Climate change - bigger than the war on terror
This is our earth so we look after it
Let's not be lemmings
Say no 2 more CO2
I-Count rally in Trafalgar Square
Mark Lynas for Prime Minister
By contrast, the rally in Trafalgar Square was less politically charged, verging at times on light entertainment, with a comedian acting as compere, and some band called Razorlight, whose songs seemed to have no bearing on the subject in hand. Almost what I imagine Live8 would have been like. Or maybe I'm getting old.
Trafalgar Square was packed. Once I got in, there was no way I could move again until the rally ended and people started dispersing. I've never seen it like that before.
A new and updated version of Kate Evans' comic "Funny weather we're having at the moment isn't it dear - everything you didn't want to know about climate change but should probably find out" has been released. Get it from Climate Outreach Information Network ( http://www.coinet.org.uk ). See also http://www.cartoonkate.co.uk/
There may be some more audio coming later, and I think a short film is also on the cards.

It consists of George Monbiot's speech, plus a bit of samba, set against the backdrop of images of the protestors and the I-Count movie shown in Trafalgar Square.
Constructive criticism welcome.
