Rural Conference - Climate Change

To Close House just outside Heddon for the Rural Conference. Had a good chat with Ian Brown of One North East, who was chairing the day. The Climate Change presentation impressed a lot - much discussion of the water shortages that face us in the future. The Climate Change lecturer reminded us of the great trusim that - "In the past we have fought wars over oil ...in the next 100 years we will fight wars over water"

Dismayed to read a poll that says that people are less concerned than in yesteryear about the environment / climate change.
