I sometimes think Mr Monbiot's trying too hard to be seen as a mover and shaker when other folks have already gotten on with the job.

So I do think there is a place for people who do grab the headlines, however self-interested and ego-driven they may be, in fact there's even a place for the 'fairy stories' they tell, because it's sensational tales like 'Tigers in Surrey' which suck disinterested civilians like me in and get us thinking - never a bad thing, surely?
never a bad thing, surely?
Do you not have an absolute legal requirement for replanting following forest harvesting (aka logging) in the UK?
Relatively stupid not to sustain forest ecologies, what ever they may be.
In the formal sense, "conservation" is a myth in the face of human encroachment on the environment.
The very best we can do is sustained management. Desipite the simple fact that we have a far larger land base for management
here, than you will ever have, it still gets phuqued up some of the time, even in our showcase national parks like Banff and Jasper (2 hrs east of me).
We have a a number of Hultafors Outdoor Knives with Firesteels
