I believe it's so important that we all work together, to help safeguard the future of the British beefarming industry and to ensure we can all continue to enjoy delicious picnics, BBQs, ice creams and ice cold glasses of cider, on sunny summer days like the one we're enjoying today, for years to come.
So will there be a fracking free-for-all? Not quite. Unfortunately the industry will inevitably expand, but probably not in the way people are expecting.
Energy often goes hand in hand with power, in both senses of the word. Energy, like power, has many negative connotations which mostly stem from its...
Britain's decision to leave the EU and its impact on the Paris agreement remains unknown. But impending Brexit has certainly created far more questions than answers when it comes to tackling climate change. We must do all we can to ensure there is a positive answer to them.
A Game of Thrones fan theory that recently caught my attention speculates that the dreaded White Walkers marching steadily south are a metaphor for climate change, and the more I've thought about it, the more it bothers me.... I've done some research and lined up some of the simplest things we can all do to help protect the environment today.
Experience of the countryside is all about opportunity for me. It's a chance to look at life boiled down to its simplest form and better still, see things from a different view. Whether a career in the countryside is for you, or you just want to eat great food, one thing is for sure, understanding our environment is a good thing for everybody.
I've grown accustomed over the years to dreading going back. To knowing that the places I first explored in the early days of my career will be horrible sullied reflections of my rosiest memories, that I will end up feeling crushed, and demotivated as a result. What I saw of the Asmat was a beacon of light. It was a sign of quite how dramatically environments bounce back if given a chance.
To say that UK farming is at a crossroads is an understatement. Food security, the rural economy and environmental management could all change beyond recognition after Brexit when the UK's relationship with the Common Agricultural Policy ends.
This week's vote leaves a bitter taste because the British government has successfully undermined air pollution laws that could have saved thousands of extra lives, only to forfeit its right to ever change them again by voting to leave.
There's an overpopulation problem alright, but not the one you might think. There are seven billion people on our planet, but times that number by 10 ...
What happens now the country has voted to leave the EU? Well, EU air pollution limits were transposed into UK law, so technically they still stand. But dealing with air pollution will require a step change in transport policy. We need to get the most polluting bangers off the road, incentivise cleaner electric and hybrid vehicles, invest in public transport, create clean air zones and encourage people to walk and cycle for shorter journeys.
Whether you voted Remain or Leave in last week's referendum, the Brexit outcome will have ramifications beyond direct financial, political and socio-economic impacts.
We won't be given a referendum on fracking, protecting badgers and hedgehogs, where our sewage outflow pipes should go, or whether a habitable climate is worth protecting. But democracy is not suspended. Now is the time that your voice is most urgently needed to protect the things you love which cannot speak for themselves.
Through Escape the City, I often met high-flying professionals who wanted to ditch their day-to-day routines in order to 'find more meaning' and 'change the world'. I must have talked to at least a thousand millennials who stated the same dream of owning a business that also improved society.
It's a year since Pope Francis published Laudato Si' - On Care for our Common Home, the first papal letter devoted to the need to protect God's crea...
I still think of myself as a newcomer to retailing, but I've learned more about food in two years at Tesco than I've done in many years. It's been a journey which has left me mixed emotions. Too often, I've seen examples across the supply chain of good, edible food being thrown away. We have to fix this - working together, across the food industry, in partnership.
