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.

    Dalai Lama urges Obama not to approve Keystone pipeline

    I don’t think anyone saw this one coming……but His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama is the latest high profile critic of the Keystone Pipeline.

    He is one of a group of nine Nobel Peace Laureates (including Archbishop Desmond Tutu) who have written a letter to President Obama, urging him to honour the environmental pledges he made back in 2008 and reject the Keystone extension.

    See the most recent stories about the Keystone Pipeline.
