10 Green Groups

Posted in: Comment, News and Updates

... have written to No. 10 to complain about government policy on the environment.  The NAEE website has the detail.

The signatories style themselves: "the leaders of ten leading UK charities concerned with protection of the environment", which made me wonder why only 10 had signed – and why these 10.  True, the usual suspects are there:  RSPB, WWF, the Campaign to Protect Rural England, Greenpeace, Friends of the Earth, the Wildlife Trusts, and the National Trust; but so are the Institute for European Environmental Policy, the Campaign for Better Transport, and the Green Alliance, none of which would seem to be "leading charities".

And where, I wondered were the Wildlife and Wetlands Trust, the Woodland Trust, the John Muir Trust, Eden, SEEd, FACE, ELSIE, etc?  Maybe it's an August holiday problem.
