About this site

The environment, Nature and beauty from a Scottish perspective.

Knowledge is power......but beyond that I don't have a particular agenda to push here. I don't necessarily have answers to the questions our environment is demanding of us.....but I do have the desire to get more people talking about environmental issues even if we don't all see eye to eye.

Problems are unlikely to be addressed let alone resolved unless folk know what is going on around them. And to that end, information & debate are ultimately better than ignorance or sticking our heads in the sand.

PLUS....it's a beautiful, awe-inspiring and sometimes terrifying planet. Put some time aside to marvel at it.

    A BBC graphic that gives you some idea just how large Asteroid 2012 DA14 is.  
The enormous lump of rock will pass just 17,200 miles from Earth in approximately 5 1/2 hours time.  That’s VERY close.  In fact it’s closer to the planet than many of our satellites.
We’re assured that there’s no threat of collision so don’t worry.  However, perhaps worry about all the other big lumps of rock out there that we don’t know about.  It’s a tad unsettling that we didn’t even know about this one until a year ago!
