Friends of the Earth news update

Friends of the Earth has its fingertips on the pulse of environmental news in the Yorkshire region. Take a look at our latest news update.

Please visit http://www.foe.co.uk/resource/briefings/yh_update_oct13.pdf for Friends of the Earth’s brand new monthly update for the Yorkshire and Humber region.

In it you will find the latest news on what’s happening across a range of environmental issues in our region.

For instance:

  • Energy | the latest on the Government’s Energy Bill, carbon capture and storage, biomass burning and gas exploration (including fracking)
  • Climate change | what the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s report says and implications for our region
  • Transport | HS2, the Government’s plans for new roads in Yorkshire and how good are our Local Transport Bodies
  • Natural Environment | biodiversity offsetting – what is it and is it good or bad?
  • Economic Development | how sustainable are the region’s bids for EU funding and will our LEP’s Single Growth pots deliver for the environment?


There’s also a few selected media links after each section and links to an online events calendar. 

If you’ve got an environment-related event coming up, please send the details to Friends of the Earth Regional Campaigner, Simon Bowens, at simon.bowens@foe.co.uk or contact him on 0113 242 8150 and they can be added to the calendar.
