It was suggested by Perth Business Gateway to rewrite the 2001 proposal to use the Millennium Dome as a global environmental management centre, this time relevant for Scotland in 2006. The outline executive summary, Scotland:The World's First Ecological Superpower, was produced. The next stage is to implement it, what do you think?

Letter to Greenwich MPs and Councillors

Dear Greenwich Political Representative

I have used the press release by Greenwich Councillor Nigel Fletcher in the following post on Milennium Project Two, Googles No 1 blog search and resource for the Millennium Dome.

Do you not think it would have been in the public interest for the UK, London or at the least Greenwich to have been informed that in 2001 the Governments consultants, in letters considered the establishment of a global environmental centre at Greenwich "good" and "interesting", that in emails confirmed it had been moved forward in the competition ie shortlisted and in private discussions was the proposal they wanted to support. Time and world events also proving this was the best proposal for the Dome. Which was why it was entered.

How ironic that in the week that global environmental management is the top global news story, all the coverage Greenwich got was that it didn't get a casino.

Imagine if the competition criteria had been followed Greenwich this week would have been getting a a £ mutli billion cheque from the IMF, World Bank and the UN. Every single news media in the world would be in Greenwich reporting on how the Dome was the leading global resource in resolving climate change and all other environmental challenges. Bird Flu in Suffolk, flooding in Indonesia and that is on an average Sunday morning.

Do you think Greenwich has been sold down the river, especially when sea level rise takes hold. Oh yes the proposal did specifically mention flooding in London and it's solutions. It may be of some consolation that when London does flood with the £10s if not £100s of billions that will be incurred in cost and damage, the Government did have the solutions all along. They just 'forgot' to tell anybody.

Yours sincerely
