My first blog – what am I blogging about? Well, I have been concerned about environmental issues now since the late 1970s. As a school boy I was a member of the YOC (Young Ornithologists Club) and became aware of the effects of pollution and modern chemicals on wildlife. In particular it was suspected that DDT affected birds of prey such as the peregrine. As a student I discovered a book called Bent World by Ron Elsdon – subtitled “A Christian response to the environmental crisis”. I have been concerned about environmental issues and in particular how my Christian faith relates to my concerns.
So this blog is a space for me to put my musings about my journey. I would welcome constructive comments from all people of all backgrounds and all faiths. We only have one planet to live on so how can we work to live together on it without destroying it?
