Five minutes to midnight

Melting of Greenland Ice Cap - John Mcconnico

“UK Met Office estimates 2016 will be at least as hot as 2015, which would mean the three hottest years ever had occurred in a row” more

Increasing possibilities for Fracking in UK and cutting subsidies for Solar and other Renewable Energies – it doesnt make sense to me.

Remember reading some time ago about the Doomsday Clock and how close we are to midnight and this was a while ago.

Instead of globally in-fighting – It would be the most amazing thing to use this energy, money and resources to work togethor and sort out some of the really big issues to save our beautiful World.

Brighton and Lewes Downs Unesco Biosphere

Brighton and Lewes Downs are now a UNESCO World Biosphere site!
(and Ditchling is included)

We learnt yesterday from UNESCO that we have achieved our aim of the Brighton & Lewes Downs area being internationally recognised for:

  • our high-quality environment
  • everyone’s work to look after it
  • our future ambitions to make it even better for people and nature

We are the first completely new World Biosphere site established in the UK for almost 40 years, the first ever in south-east England, and one of only a handful worldwide to include a city.

Ivy

Ivy

Walking round where we live so many trees smothered in ivy and sooner or later will be brought down in a high wind. These trees smothered in ivy look dark and sad and nutrients being taken to support the ivy. Not sure if this problem is just very bad here in the UK or if its everywhere.

But sometimes take small clippers and cut it through low down or pull off and in a few weeks the ivy dies and hope this prolongs the life of the tree.

Maybe next time you’re passing a tree, smothered in ivy.. you could do same thing.
