‘Carbon Bomb’ Projects and their Global Impact

Climate Change – Remember?

You know me. I won’t let this topic drop. It matters so much more than many of the news items dominating our press currently. I couldn’t care less about the Wagatha Christie court case or indeed the Depp-Heard debacle. Footballers and their wives may have disputes over instagram but who cares?!

Let’s face up to the melting ice and do something about it.

What actually matters?

The war in the Ukraine. Of course it does. This is an awful situation which has uprooted so many citizens and put Europe in a state of turmoil.

But still remember…

CLIMATE CHANGE

That’s right! It’s not going away any time soon. The subject we all know about but governments never really do a lot to deal with. Yes they had a COP26 summit and did a lot of PR loosely linked to it but then they got back to bickering and shady politics.

Energy Crisis

Now is the perfect time for governments to pump some serious cash into renewable energy resources such as solar panels, wind turbines and hydroelectricity generation. Let’s stop lining the pockets of big conglomerate oil companies and begin creating jobs in the renewables field.

Fields of solar panels would make a positive difference.

Our dependency on oil and gas has been highlighted recently due to shortages caused by the war. We also seem to depend on a few countries that are free to control the price of these materials. Our hands are tied when it comes to sourcing these fossil fuels.

So Remember…

That is my little mini-rant over. I just want to make sure that we keep on discussing climate change, educating each other about it and pressing our leaders for quick, impactful changes.

Thank you for taking the time to read this. How is your government engaging with this vital issue? Let me know in the comments and please consider following my blog. Here is a previous poem that I wrote on the subject of climate change.

Tying Things Together – A Brilliant Book

Boo’s Shoes: A Rabbit and Fox Story – Learn To Tie Shoelaces

As a teacher, I am always shocked to discover how many children get through life without knowing how to tie their own shoelaces. I am forever being asked to help them to tie them and I cannot believe they can get to eight years old and wear laced up shoes, without being able to do them up independently.

I have to admit that in recent years I have struggled to find useful resources that enable me to go through lace tying step-by-step, so having come across this incredible educational book, I am more than pleased to big it up. The book is called Boo’s Shoes: A Rabbit and Fox Story – Learn To Tie Shoelaces and stars two really cool characters, Boo the bunny and Farah Fox. Check out the colourful cover page below:

 

Boo’s Shoes is written by Sybrina Durant

Why is this book handy for parents?

Boo always wants shoes without laces and doesn’t have the confidence to learn to tie his shoes. His friend, Farah, convinces him that tying laces is an important life skill and will help him feel better about himself.

As well as telling a beautiful story, which can be read again and again, this book includes an instruction section, where the reader can learn step-by-step how to make a bunny ear bow with their laces. The thing that I love most about it is that it encourages parents and children to share a love of reading whilst also learning a valuable lesson.

 

Summary

So, tying things together, this wonderful children’s book is an educational treat. Boo’s story is part of a series of teaching books, including one about tying a tie and another about neck scarves. Sybrina’s book shop can be found at The Rabbit and the Fox Book Store and is full of brilliant stories, with animal characters who find fun ways to teach these important life skills.

Thank you for reading this shoe tying book post. I am keen for young people to develop their own independence through shared learning experiences. This book is a useful way for parents and children to work together and enjoy getting to grips with tying laces.
