I co-found Protect Earth in 2020 and none of us knew how big it would become. We plant tens of thousands of trees all over the country every year, and for me that work is entirely unpaid. Being brutally honest I could do with some help.
The Internet, good or bad? It's causing about 4% of global emissions, so either way we should probably do something about that, and the Green Software Foundation is here to help us figure out what to do.
You may have heard about High-Speed Rail 2, and you may have heard that it was going to (or already had) destroyed 108 ancient woodlands. That is not true. It was never true, not even before the Tories slashed the plans for Hs2 to pieces.
