4. Learn your Lichens number 5:
– AND THIS IS A REALLY EASY ONE:

Xanthoria  parietina  –    lots of English names:-

Big  Orange  Lichen  – Bird Perch Lichen –  Maritime Starburst Lichen.

This lichen has increased in recent years due to the increased nitrogen
oxides and other nitrogen compounds in  the  atmosphere
(from  slurry, manure, fetilizers and car fumes.. and bird droppings)

It’s  on  a  branch of nearly every tree around Settle. It is very
beautiful. Go out and  have  a  look.  You  can  point  to  it  and
say “That’s Xanthoria parietina”  Tell me if you see some!

****************************************************************

1. The  Soup-a-Carol at St John’s Methodist Church Hall will be on Monday

FIRST THREE POINTS IN DETAIL:

1. LEARN YOUR LICHENS 4: SQUAMARINA CARTILAGINEA

Visit the limestone wall in Langcliffe High Road..
It grows in a few big chunky  pastel green patches with big (2mm)
light brown reproductive bodies – discs with rims.
http://rainforest-save.blogspot.co.uk/2015/11/squamarina-cartilaginea.html

****************************************************************

2. CLIMATE TALKS IN PARIS:

Are  any   of   you  going to Paris or to London? To demonstrate your
concern about climate change?

Actually, I know two of you on this list who are – well done Sylvia from
Steeton who as I write will be marching on the London march (Sunday.)
and  Paul  Kelly  from  Giggleswick  will be travelling by Eurostar to
Paris next month with a group from CAFOD.

Yesterday I went to the Leeds Demonstration yesterday about Climate
Justice. Over 2000 (maybe 3000) events are taking place this weekend
in  support and publicity for the Paris Talks about limiting Climate
Change.

See what I wrote about Leeds here: (incl photos and videos):
http://www.greenchristian.org.uk/archives/10036
(I help edit the website for national organisation Green Christian,
and  I  know  three people who are currently cycling to Paris, and one
person who is walking. (I hope the weather is better in France))

We did our bit in  Bentham and  Settle with our Environment Walks
earlier this year. http://bit.ly/1IrkoxV

Rainfall  data  at  Malham  Tarn  Field  Centre shows that we are
getting  more days with more than 1 inch of rain per year than we used
to.  (And  even  some days with 2 inches)- and last fortnight’s floods
will have added to this.

****************************************************************

3. COFFEE MORNING AT ST JOHN’s on TUE 1 DEC 10am

** In aid of vanishing habitats and species.  **
The Guardian this week that over half the primate species
in the world are under threat of extinction.

It  will also be the VERY last charity coffee morning that we have at
St John’s old church.
If  you  can’t  come  to  the coffee morning I will be happy to accept
donations.
