    MSE Insert:

    We've seen some debate on this thread about the relevance of some posts to the topic.

    To ensure the thread remains on topic for forumites wanting to discuss the latest news we're asking that all posts contain a link to the news you're discussing.

    For the purposes of this thread the "news" needs to be within the last two weeks.

    Back to Martyn1981's original post.

    I thought it might be a good idea to have a thread for posting general news items that may be of interest.

    PV and the 'Solar in the news' thread attract a lot of interest, so here's a thread for all the other goings on.

    Not exactly green energy, but part of the solution to the UK getting CO2 emissions down to net zero.

    Rewild a quarter of UK to fight climate crisis, campaigners urge

    A quarter of the UKís land could be restored to nature, making a significant contribution towards cutting the nationís carbon emissions to zero, under a new rewilding proposal.

    The plan, published by Rewilding Britain, calls for billions of pounds in farm subsidies to be redirected towards creating native woodlands and meadows and protecting peat bogs and salt marshes. The group says wildlife would benefit, farmers would not lose money and food production need not fall.

    I'd rather see food production going over to regenerative Permaculture systems. We'd get the lower CO2 emissions, less chemical use, plus healthier food and more biodiversity.
