Farming in Sussex, making hay to feed the animals in winter



GREED IS DESTROYING OUR HERITAGE - Views like this are fast disappearing from villages as councils like Wealden (as an example) scramble to give developers free reign in return for more rates to bolster their coffers, despite the fact that we are in the middle of a climate emergency. Such councils and the developers taking advantage of them are nothing short of climate criminals.

GLOBAL WARMING - The Sun provides us with an infinite supply of energy upon which all life on earth depends. Our blue planet has experienced many climate changes in its history, including the ice age when amazing creatures such a the Dinosaurs and Mammoths suffered extinction. Man is artificially warming the planet by burning fossil fuels in some kind of economic arms race that cannot be sustained and must be brought under control if we are not to extinguish the lives of many more species such as the Polar Bears in the Arctic.
