Red green

It's a strange philosophy that holds that laying down thousands of olympic swimming pool-sized slabs of concrete in our few last remaining wild places, to erect wind turbines, is environmentalism. But that sort of attitude leads directly to this:

Almost a third of Uganda’s bird life could lose its habitat in a protected forest if the Government goes ahead with plans to allow sugar cane growers to tear down trees and cultivate plantations for biofuel production.
