Fantastic interview with the guy who wrote possible the best kids books ever (His Dark Materials), Philip Pullman outlining his battle with the planners when trying to put solar panels on his roof. You’ve got to love anyone who can pepper an interview with phrases such as ‘craven liars’ (pointed at politicians). He concludes:

In my pessimistic moments, I think we are all heading for a catastrophe in which the planet is just going to slough off about five billion of us. In my better moments, I remember other things I was worried about that just went away.
