June round-up

Posted on June 30, 2013 at 11:00 am,

After a couple of months where real life has been rather busy (including doing some very successful full-time electioneering back in May), I’m now back on the blog. So here are some things I spotted in that time.

Carbon Dioxide levels in the atmosphere have been recorded at an historic high level, which is rather worrying.

Thanks to Kickstarter, there is now going to be an open source gaming console.

Also recently released is the world’s first fair-trade phone.

Frank Cranmer at Law and Religion UK (not to be confused with Tory blogger “Archbishop” Cranmer) asks are human rights “Christian”?

Adam Ramsey at Bright Green highlights how the justification for the government’s austerity economics has been completely destroyed, but that won’t change anything.

There has, of course, been a lot of comment on the bill to legalise same-sex marriage, much of it somewhat out of date by the time I’m posting this. Two of note are:

Brendan O’Neill, the editor of Spiked worries about the conformism behind the culture change on the issue.

Peter Ould points out how the Bishops are seeking to improve the bill, now that it is pretty much guaranteed to become law.

And, finally, this video is probably the best Disney parody ever:
