Over the last few weeks, and into next week, I have been a guest blogger on the RSPB website; blogging about the Rio+20 conference from a variety of perspectives. And yesterday, the RSPB got a much more eminent guest blogger to chip in – Deputy PM Nick Clegg who is going to the Rio conference. Here are the links to what he and I wrote:
June 1 - The road to Rio (+20)
June 2 – Gone and some are forgotten
June 3 – Another boost, 20 years on
June 4 – Shifting baselines are important too
June 5 – Special places
June 6 – Nature on the move
June 7 – Rainforests paying their way
June 8 – Trouble at sea
June 9 – The coming ‘cold rush’
June 10 – Feeding the world – less is more?
June 12 -The greatest show on Earth? (coral reefs)
June 14 -Wildlife tourism – killing with kindness (or not?)? (which countries have got it right?)
Today – Non-native species
Sunday – The Catskills and NY’s water supply
Monday – Biofuels
Tuesday – Us or them?
Wednesday – Brazil
Nick Clegg’s blog says some good things. The test will be whether he can say some good things when he comes back – sign him up for a report on Rio please RSPB.
And so to football: there have been quite a few draws so far, and there are three non-EU countries involved, so let’s ignore all of those for simplicity. In the remaining seven matches, four have been won by the country with the greatest proportion of its land area designated as Natura 2000 sites. We’ll see how this ends up.
