Quick Links 21st June 2016

Each week I’ll try and post quick links to things that I’ve seen, read, inspired me or just sparked my interest in the previous week, with a little background and my thoughts and other things that I’ve been up to in the previous week. Mostly gardening, cooking and environmental stuff but not always.

Ace & The Desert Dog

National Geographic story about the above video here.

It tickles me slightly that the new Independence Day movie goes on general release in the UK on the same day as the EU Referendum, someone must have a sense of humour.

I somehow doubt that they’ll ever build a new nuclear reactor at Hinkley Point, or at least not one that involves EDF.

Although I agree with the comments made by scientists in this report, I’m afraid that things are probably a lot worse, and that the opportunity to really make a difference is past.

I said on this blog before that there are many politicians (including a few that I’ve had the misfortune to have to work with) who are in it for personal benefit.

Jo Cox, was one of the exceptions, someone who was truly a public servant, this messed up world, feels like a poorer place now.
