Various Events to Visit around Settle

1. A big thank you to anyone who has young children and goes with them
to visit very old people, including neighbours, at this time of year.
I am sure most very old people appreciate it.

2. I am going to Northallerton URC church on Sunday morning (1 Dec).
The green group there are organising the service and I am giving a
short talk  on rainforests and the Rainforest Fund Project  (See end)

3. I had a wonderful time last weekend at Malham Tarn Field Centre at
a seminar where people reported on their research about Malham Tarn
over the last few years. The lake and its wetland surrounds are a very
special place.

So I have to prepare my mini talk now to give at Northallerton on
Sunday- It does not seem 5 years since I first prepared a talk on the
rainforest, starting – “You can do something incredible – and at the
end of the talk I’ll tell you what….”

http://rainforest-save.blogspot.co.uk/2008_02_01_archive.html

In 2005 a report  by FOE and  Orangutan conservation societies
predicted that at the then rates of habitat lost that within 12 years
there would be no Orangutans left in the wild.
.. that’s 2018 – four years from now.

I have been down to the Coop to get my props –  Bread, peanut butter,
margarine, custard creams. The forest is being burned to plant palm
oil and soya. 10 of supermarket foods contain palm oil (as also do
lipstick, soap and now biofuels).    And many of our UK cattle are fed
on soya.
