Legislation for Coal Authority licensing for coal extraction goes against UK’s climate commitments | henryadamsblog (wordpress.com)

Link to my old 2019 hub page about the proposed mine. Some of the info now superceded by major changes in 2020/1, so use SLACC hub page instead: Cumbria Coal Mine Campaign – SLACC http://slacc.org.uk/campaigns/cumbria-coal-mine/
My old 2019 hub page: The Whitehaven coalmine proposal will result in huge CO2e emissions (9 Mt pa for up to 5 decades). This is a hub page with some relevant links on this and related matters

Wildlife and habitats

“Tree planting is important, but it must not destroy much rarer, valuable habitats”

Trees should not be planted in peatlands (such as blanket bog, wet heath, mires)

I recommend ‘Inkcap‘ – the new weekly roundup of the latest wildlife news by Sophie Yeo. Twitter:  @inkcapjournal

My website/webspace dragonfly1

My website/webspace dragonfly1 contains numerous documents both as html pages and as pdf’s.

NB: my website dragonfly1 is occasionally removed to archive by my ISP Plusnet due to “exceeding its bandwidth”. This usually happens at critically important times when I’m trying to spread climate-related information that fossil fuel interests would rather remain hidden. This could be due to DoS attacks (Denial of Service) by fossil fuel interests or climate denialists who support the ff industry. I use the present WordPress pages as a back-up when my site is taken down offline.

My website hub-page: http://www.dragonfly1.plus.com/topics.html
Note: this hub-page has not been updated in recent years.
The blog posts listed to the right link to some of my more recent uploads – which are now mostly pdf’s instead of html web-pages.
