Seduced and abandoned: tourism and climate change in the Alps
Rising temperatures have contributed to the decline of hundreds of ski resorts on Italian slopesDeserted ski lifts and ruined hotels are the relics of a tourist industry that first seduced and then abandoned the Alps, leaving behind cement, steel cables, paved car parks and deforested slopes.From Piedmont to Friuli, there are hundreds of abandoned ski resorts in Italy. In 2011, researchers counted 186, a number that is likely to have grown since. Continue reading...

Britain’s young people are radicalised and registered. Will this be our election? | Micha Frazer-Carroll
Our generation is even more politicised than in 2017, and the spike in registration is a reason to hope that change is comingIs the “youthquake” of 2017 about to be upstaged? After just a glimpse at the voter registration figures for the upcoming election, it looks as if the next quake might chart even higher on the Richter scale. More than 3 million people registered to vote between the election being called and the deadline – 875,000 more than the same period in 2017 – and two-thirds of them were under 35.There was a lot of debate surrounding 2017’s surge in young voting, including whether or not it actually happened. After a “youthquake” was initially declared after the election, a widely reported paper based on the British Election Study claimed that there was no substantial rise in youth turnout – leading many to declare the “youthquake” a myth. But more recent analysis from political scientists Patrick Sturgis and Will Jennings, indicating a large increase in turnout in 2017 among under-30s, suggests it was real after all. There is also much we don’t know about how this year’s youth registration spike will affect the final result on 13 December. Continue reading...

Line of Duty's Martin Compston: 'I haven't played a nice guy in a while'
Plucked from obscurity by Ken Loach, the Scottish actor has gone from working-class kid to star of the UK’s favourite drama. Now, he’s in a new thriller – and, for once, without an English accentEvery actor has a war story about a disastrous audition, but Martin Compston’s is particularly chaotic. In 2002, the Scottish actor – then in his late teens – flew down to London to audition for a guest role in an ITV period drama. Just one problem: he had been sent the wrong lines. “So they gave me what I was supposed to do and asked me to come back in 15 minutes,” he says. “It was a three-page monologue from a suicidal kid telling a doctor why he wanted to take his own life. I was so angry, it was all a blur.”The experience was enough to make Compston consider chucking in his fledgling acting career. “My agent at the time called and I told him: ‘I don’t think this is for me.’ And then he said, ‘you got the part.’ I felt like maybe I can do this, maybe there’s something there.” Continue reading...

The strife of Brian: is it unchristian to use the f-word?
Actor Brian Blessed dropped the f-bomb after tripping during a charity church service. Was this just a faux pas – or a genuine sin?Brian Blessed had just finished his reading at a charity carol service in London last Thursday, when he tripped and fell. Shocked audience members rushed to help, but it turned out that the 83-year-old actor had suffered only a grazed knee. Worse damage had been done to the sacred atmosphere, which still echoed from the loudest voice in showbusiness yelling “Fuck!” into the interior of St Giles-in-the-Fields.This sort of swearing isn’t very Christmassy behaviour, but is it actually unchristian? While grazing his knee, Blessed did have the presence of mind not to “take the name of the Lord thy God in vain”, as prohibited by the second commandment. In the Sermon on the Mount, on the other hand, Jesus says: “Anyone who says, ‘You fool!’ will be in danger of the fire of hell.” It is hard not to feel that Blessed went a little further than that.
