This is what #naturerecovery looks like on mountainside in upland #Wales to right of fence. I stopped there - it was alive with warblers singing.Left of fence still sheep grazed. Will new Wales Sustainable Farming Scheme encourage farmers to create habitat for nature like this?
Fuelled by capitalist fundamentalism, the war on nature is at least as violent an ideology as that perpetrated by ISIS and the Taliban, and much more of a threat to all of us.

Interesting article about the dangers posed to locals by the old nuclear power station, which I didn't know was a gas-cooled design that is inherently 'dirty' in that it vented radioactive particles, which the author claims dramatically increased local incidences of certain cancers. The proposed new design is 'closed loop' and doesn't do this. Make of that what you will.
