The Guide to Responsible Media – Blue & Green Tomorrow’s final report of 2012 – examines the aftermath of the Leveson report, while also tackling the subjects of press freedom, freedom of expression and regulation. And we’re delighted that the world didn’t end so that we can present it to you.
It features interviews with Hacked Off, the leading campaigning body for a free and accountable press, and Full Fact, an organisation that promotes accuracy in the media, and we look at the difference between freedom of expression and the freedom to mislead, while asking whether we really do have a ‘free’ press – or one owned by powerful people with a specific economic agenda.
There is also a section on climate change – one of the most hotly debated subjects in 21st century media – and why reporting of the issue is often fickle.
Robert F Kennedy once said, “The problem of power is how to achieve its responsible use rather than its irresponsible and indulgent use – of how to get men of power to live for the public rather than off the public.”
Truly independent regulation and more effective redress, coupled with a greater emphasis on ethics and responsibility, would go a long way to reinstalling public confidence in Britain’s essential free press.

Guide to Sustainable Energy 2016
“I’d put my money on the sun and solar energy. What a source of power! I hope we don’t have to wait till oil and coal run out before we tackle that.”
We found the quote at the end of a great article on the New York Times Magazine website in its Current Thinking column, that was current thinking from 2007! It’s still worth a read.
You hold in your hand (on your smartphone, tablet or desktop) the fourth edition of our Guide and the current thinking remains we’d put our money on solar energy, but also wind, tidal, wave and geothermal. And nuclear?
Recently the UK government decided it would put our money on nuclear with the Hinkley Point C after months of dithering, perfectly illustrating everything that is wrong with government strategic thinking and energy policy. The wrong technology, with the wrong partners at the wrong price.
Which is why we’re delighted to have contributions from Tidal Lagoon Power, Abundance Energy, Bristol Energy Cooperative and the excellent investment organisations (Alliance Trust, Foresight, Impax, Triodos and WHEB) that are putting money into distributed clean energy and storage – the right technology, with the right partners at the right price.
And we also have an article about nuclear fusion – a technology which divides the environmentally minded. We don’t have a strong opinion on nuclear fusion and wanted to just present the technology. We believe you are more than capable of forming your own judgment.
We hope you enjoy the guide.
