That's the eye watering message from our friends over at I Count. They're talking of course about the Climate Change Bill - and are asking you to put the virtual squeeze on your MP, to make sure the bill gets the balls it needs to stop climate change:

The tents are down, the wellies are drying out and the mayhem is over. Here are a few of our favourite pics from Glastonbury 2007 (you can see lots more on Flickr):

Yesterday's summer solstice was greeted by brave souls who left their tents at stupid o'clock in the morning. Reactions to the celestial event were mixed, but by all accounts the cloud cover made it somewhat less than spectacular. Changeable is probably the best word to describe the weather and while the rivers of mud that made Glastonbury 2005 so memorable have yet to appear, persistent showers have turned the ground into something resembling chocolate soup.

Welcome to Glastonbury

Glastonbury is once again upon us and even though the festival proper doesn't start until Friday, the gates are open and happy campers are pouring in through every entrance. I'm currently holed up in a portacabin behind a replica of the Ark, madly editing video Tracy and I have shot over the past couple of days. We've a few technical hitches (lack of internet access being one of them) so we're a bit behind but now we're online, the stories will be coming thick and fast.

Glastonbury: skating, soulmates and carbon dating

A skateboarder rides an FSC ramp at Glastonbury in 2005So, we've covered the Techno-Dome and some of the highlights in the Greenpeace field. Let's see - what else have we got lined up for Glastonbury?

If you've ever wondered what your carbon footprint looks like, you can get your own carbon calculator installed on your mobile at the Bluetooth Takeaway. The Centre for Alternative Technology will be offering them to download via Bluetooth.

Then you can stroll over to the Guardian Soulmates for some 'carbon' dating. They'll match you a mate with some speed dating and carbon mating. There'll be dancing and cabaret in the evenings between 8pm and 10pm, and if you get serious we'll 'marry' you on Sunday afternoon for a year and a day, just like in the fairy tales.
