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.

The Citarum River in Indonesia is reputedly the world’s most polluted.  It’s almost beyond belief that 5 million people depend on the river for their water supply.
An ambitious $500m clean-up project is underway…..but you really have to question whether money and remedial actions are going to solve a problem like that.
