Road Kill

a red squirrel Last summer I had the unfortunate experience of a squirrel trying to tangle with my alloys at 40mph. The squirrel lost. I felt really bad about it, but there was nothing I could do. It was a native red too, you get these over at Weald Park. The question is, would I, or you, kill an animal deliberately in order to fuel a car?

Don’t put Wildlife in your Tank,
says the RSPB.

The Government plans to put biofuels in the UK's transport fuel from April. Sounds like a good idea, right? Wrong.
The drive for biofuels is wiping out precious wildlife habitats. And some biofuels are causing more problems for the climate than they solve. A deal in Europe to force us to increase the amount we use could make things even worse. Why wreck our planet while pretending to save it? It makes no sense.
Help us urge Transport Secretary Ruth Kelly to ditch this misguided policy. Use our easy online form to send an e-mail directly to her.

  1. Last night, I saw a programme about somebody travelling along the tropic of Capricorn, (it was in South America yesterday)and they were showing the devastation created by the deforestation in Paraguay (if I remember rightly). Not biofuels in that case, but soya beans. All that to fuel the greed of the human kind and its' god, a thriving economy. So very sad. Tribes have lived there in harmony with nature for thousands of years and they don't have a chance anymore.
