I believe that we do need to look after this planet a lot better than we do. The UK in particular needs to Re-Forest, the huge swaithes of land that have been chopped down, where I live on the Yorkshire Moors, Moorland is posh for industrial wasteland, which is what it is in effect, de-forested by the Monks to clear for lead mining and smelting, its kept as it is for the landed gentry to shoot the rare Red Grouse, and then take £ to Bahamas or other tax haven. So as you can tell I have an opinion and think we need to improve the situation.
BUT I have also had to watch as The National Parks have banned the Sports and Activitys I love, on the grounds of Noise and damage to enviroment. e.g there is no public water of any size a mile or more length in england where I can waterski and jetski, you have to pay a club, not one lake in the District where I can do my essential sports. I say essential as I am Autistic and also suufer with PTSD from my time as a Soldier. Before the CRIMINAL BAN on Windermere I could control my PTSD and Autism better, functioning well enough to work and have a useful life. The Ban on Windermere made in effect the Sea the only place or pay silly £ to private clubs, I dont do clubs or crowds due to health/brain probs. So as a direct Eco improvment which all you walkers, sailers on other selfish (Cant write here what I want its too offensive) anti motorsport petite massagers. My healyh has gone too shit.
So their you go be interested in justifying my health against some noise pollution. My other hobby was trail riding my motorbike something I had done from being 13yrs old, now all trails closed, I remember when there were no walkers it wasnt fashionable, and as a countryboy born and bred, It pees me off that townies have more say bout countryside than people who live in it. Local community in Windermere were against the BAN, just got steam rollered through democratic(my ARSE) parliment. And yet I have to put up with townie driving round in cars polluting so they can sit in cars using it as a viewing platform for the pretty hills. walkers who seem to think they should walk on the roads and not the 400sq miles of moor.
Rule for 0ne rule for the other.
P.S if you do walk on the roads on York Moors be aware theres a very peeed off local who objects to what you DO. only joking (Or am I)
