That’s good to hear - I hope this new line lasts more than a few days. I’ve yet to hear of any current environmental policies (EU policies the UK has helped shape for 40+ years) from which the govt wants to diverge.

Net-zero is a scientific concept, with an understood outcome (the stabilisation of temperatures). Not sure I really know what ‘real’ zero is, especially when it comes to land based emissions. As ever, open to suggestions.

Once more HS2 is in the headlines but barely a mention of the environmental costs. Whatever the final decision, bearing down on the environmental costs must be a much greater priority in the face of a nature and climate emergency.

Bit of news… I’ve written a book called Long Way Home. It's my story of coping with the challenge of tragedy, grief and war. Some of it proved incredibly painful to write, but I hope it will be a compelling read. Out on 5 March ⤵️

In my experience over the last 40+ years in conservation, environmental bill drafting has tended to dumb down the original environment ambition. As far as I can tell so far, this is the very welcome and urgently needed exception

Govt should be congratulated for resetting farming policy in , enabling farmers to tackle env crisis while producing the food we need. Hwvr there can be more certainty for farmers & consumers w/ commitments in law to existing env standards

Good to see public money for public goods still to fore. Crucial too that the and forthcoming England Tree Strategy are treated as inter-linked. Integrated land management is key to securing the many public goods trees deliver.
