Where’s Basil? Visiting Notre Dame in Paris

Basil who features in Brown Bear’s Big Day Out was visiting Notre Dame before the great fire damaged it. The book is available on Amazon. It is a colouring book which means that younger readers can have the story read to them and colour in the illustrations that are within the text and repeated at the end of the story. The story is about a bear who dons a disguise because he wants to escape from a zoo and visit a funfair.SONY DSC

Busy Bee and the Endangered Meadow reviewed by beekeeping group

I was very lucky that a Scottish beekeeping group reviewed my story, Busy Bee and the Endangered Meadow very positively. They are the Dunfermline and West Fife Beekeeping Association.

Review of Busy Bee and the Endangered Meadow

A wonderful group based in Texas gave me a very positive review of my story Busy Bee and the Endangered Meadow. They are the Texas Pollinator Powwow and they can be found on Facebook.

Doctor Bee – an illustration

This is an illustration by the very talented Alice Wright for my new story, Busy Bee and the Silent Spring. The bees have to work out how to stop a farmer using pesticides so I used Silent Spring in the title because of the ground breaking book written by Rachel Carson in 1962. She was fighting Monsanto then so in a way very little has changed.

Contracts Signed

I haven’t posted much recently. The time just seems to have disappeared. I have signed contracts with three charities where I will donate a percentage of the sales of any of my books to them. The charities are:

Plantlife

Amphibian and Reptile Conservation

Butterfly Conservation

The story that I am promoting the most currently is Busy Bee and the Endangered Meadow. It’s available as a pdf from our website  Busy Bee and the Endangered Meadow or from Amazon.co.uk or Amazon.com.

It could make a nice birthday or Christmas present for a child interested in bees.

An Example Of Fragility And Timeliness

So how many years would it take without rain for these seeds to become unviable? This is an example of the fragility of nature and the need for genes to reproduce. Over the millions of years of Earth history how many species have come and gone just waiting for the rain that never came? As a large number of species of extinct plant species have left no records, can we assume that events where natural climatic changes have taken place, that they have wiped out so many just waiting in the hope of reproducing their selfish genes?

Climate Change Causing Increased Global Hunger

It appears our short term thinking as a species is yet again causing problems. We keep finding technical solutions and then our inability to control our population growth overloads our ability to feed it. Most individuals, and especially government, cultural or religious leaders forget or don’t want to believe that we live in an interglacial period. Put simply this means that the next ice age should be coming in 10 to 15,000 years. Maybe it won’t because of the greenhouse emissions that we have caused during the last couple of centuries. If it doesn’t return then there is probably going to be some form of climate chaos. If it did return then at some point all those people living in the high northern and southern latitudes would have to move towards the equator as the returning ice sheets wiped out their cities. Why can’t humans grasp this? Looking at the climatic record one of the blindingly obvious facts is that the Earth can only support a finite number of humans. And yet nobody wants to address this unsavory reality.

A Sad Reflection On Our Convenient Lifestyles

New research shows just how dangerous the plastic waste is to turtles.

Whale Sanctuary – A Lost Opportunity

A proposal to create a whale sanctuary in the South Atlantic at a meeting in Brazil has been defeated. Unfortunately, words like developing and growth are always spouted as many governments, cultures, religions and financial systems have not come to terms with the fact that we are beyond the capacity of the Earth to support this many semi intelligent apes.

Earth R.I.P. – murdered by humanity’s stupidity.
