PLANNING FAVOUR? - Hailsham Road, Herstmonceux - Housing development in the village above Lime Wood, clearly designed by climate morons and allowed by the Parish and District councils. Sir David would not be amused as to the blight on nature. To make matters worse, there appears to be a brown smelly discharge into the stream at the foot of what was a lovely little country ramble. Now it is this insane artificial hillside!
Wealden District Councillors are frightened of their bully-boy officers, and effectively in their pockets. They are to all intents climate cowards, prepared to watch mass extinctions directly in proportion to what they are allowing to be brick built - all the while milking the system for expenses - on what they see as a never ending gravy-train: Business as usual, Blah, Blah, Blah.
In our book that makes anyone who does not stand up for Planet Earth: Climate Criminals, or Climate Deniers, those who know what harm they are causing, but carry on lying to the public, to fill their wallets.
In turn, developers are allowed to blackmail the officers and the members with threats of non-development. We say that suits us fine. Don't develop - not unless it is sustainable and affordable. Take a hike.
But WC won't stand their ground, climate unfriendly brick builds abound, causing rising sea levels: with the crime of ecocide, yet to be codified under the Rome Statute by the United Nations. Planning officers on the receiving end of favours, keep telling Councillors they need to build houses. Yup, maybe, but they should be concentrating on timber based flatpacks that retail for under £45,000, and providing a rolling stock of affordable land for those who want to install one of these units in under a month - to escape the renting trap. These units are eco quick-builds.
Timber houses built from sustainably managed forests, lock up carbon. We must plant more trees. How about changing policy to make that happen?
Many councils are still investing in fossil fuel companies for their pensions, instead of renewables. Dirty buggers!
WATER, WATER, EVERYWHERE, BUT NOT A DROP TO DRINK - Over 70% of the earth is covered with seawater, but only 1% of water is (potable) drinking water. And it is not where we'd like it to be for housing development, such as in the south of England. The north of England is water rich. In West Sussex, Natural England have had to spell out the situation to councils, as to water neutrality. That is how delicate supplies are in that regin.
We want developers with integrity, who are not so much concerned about their house in Malibu, but want to serve their community by building water neutral and affordable housing - that is sustainable. So far in East Sussex, they have not even heard of balancing water supply with housing. Yet potable water is drying up as the world gets hotter.
Do you know any developers like that? They are about as rare as rocking horse shit.
REPEAT OFFENDERS - It's no wonder that Extinction Rebellion is gathering such momentum with councils all over England carrying on as if there was no crisis. The carbon footprint for Herstmonceux village has rocketed because of all the failings of the members of Wealden to tackle climate change and set a good example. Wealden's councillors have granted planning permission for hundreds of houses without solar panels or electric vehicle charging points. If this example by every town and village in the United Kingdom, then our country would be one of the worst polluters in the world on a per square kilometer basis. The councillors you voted for are partly responsible for killing hundreds of species. It makes us want to glue ourselves to something. Peacefully mind you. This village is a contender for the Greenhouse Gas award 2019.

SUSPICIOUS DISCHARGE - Talking of which, this brown trickle stinks to high heaven of untreated sewage, and is draining into a local watercourse. We have no idea what the milky trickle in from the smaller pipe.
CLIMATE CHANGE COP OUTS - The United Nations' climate summit talks are known as COP (= Conference Of the Parties). During these global discussions action for climate policy is negotiated. In 2018 50 high profile companies published an open letter to the UN calling for more action to curb climate change. So far with over twenty-four years of haggling the arctic ice is still melting - and faster than ever. No wonder so many high profile people and corporations are worried, but not Wealden. In this District we are still granting planning consents for houses without electric vehicle charging points. What are this council like? It's criminal. But who elected the members. Yes, you did! So elect someone who knows about climate changing for the good of your children. In 2021, COP-OUT26 was another FLOP, except for finally getting coal on the UN agenda.
