The big financial markets have to go with Government policies, or bet against them, Soros style.

US policies on Global Warming are being incinerated, and the UK's could go up in flames. It is only the French and German Green stains holding the EU's policies together, and Germany's Greens are about to feel the backlash from German industry.

If Goldman Sachs are scraping around, it is actually rather encouraging.

"Parents off load their children on the street outside the school, because the school's parking spaces are reserved for the teachers."
What do you mean ..in my area that has always been the rule (except for parent evening)
Now in the last 15 years school premises have become secure areas, a parent wouldn't be allowed through the gate
cos only school staff or police cleared workers like maintenance workers and temporary instructors etc.

Then to dilute the effect of drop offs cars are not allowed to drop off any nearer than 80m from the school gates
.. the kids have to walk that last 80m plus.

Prep. and Grammar schools I attended 60s to 80s only allowed staff to park cars on school grounds. Pupils were allowed to park bicycles & motorcycles on school property.

Furthermore, over 80% of pupils walked/cycled - some cycling over 10miles each way

I really wonder why Goldman Sachs have selected me for a barrage of eco advertising?

Well, we know that GS and others were in on this scam from the early days, wanting to set up a multi-trillion carbon trading scheme covering every economy in the world. That was quite a tempting idea for any investment bank worrying where their future high margins are coming from. If you can't actually get consumers and businesses to pay for your very expensive services then co-opting government to damn well make them pay seems like a good substitute.

Having said that, they may probably know now that it is a forlorn hope. They probably still have a residual department tasked with exploiting what can be saved, which means going further down-market in their marketing and advertising
(No slight intended if you do happen to be one of the comfortably to very rich).

This school is inspiring. It is not rocket science but it is a model that I believe should be promoted because of its obvious success.
