Litter picking in Whatman Park

After months of relatively low litter levels, it is starting to rise again with the relaxation of lockdown. Obviously nowhere near as bad as we can see at the beaches but four of us decided to clean up the entrance to Whatman Park this morning with a socially distanced litter pick. 

Collected a full bin liner of people's inability to respect their local environment (I can only wonder how disgustingly dirty their homes must be...)

Climate change funded by Kent County Council

Globally, April 2020 was the hottest April on record

Globally, May 2020 was the hottest May on record. 

Globally, carbon emissions have bounced post Covid lockdowns as people are warned away from public transport.

CO2 hit 417ppm which according to Forbes is "likely the highest it has ever been in the history of humans on Earth". No shit... at least they reported it.

Even the Daily Mail reported that: "Carbon dioxide levels in the Earth's atmosphere are higher than they have been for the past 23 million years - and it’s a direct result of human activity". 

Meanwhile Kent County Council have £350m invested in fossil fuel companies, something I have been campaigning on for over ten years. The latest petition call on them to divest is here - please sign it.

This is the most serious global threat ever. 

It is hurting the planet now. 

It will kill billions of people and huge amounts of Nature.

It will make Covid look like a mild irritant.

Stop flying now. Stop unnecessary consumption now. Look at where you money is invested. Look at what your political allegiances are - do they meet the needs of the future? Of you children? If not, then change your allegiances and start campaigning for the Greens.
