The UK imported 30% more foreign gas in 2010 than in 2009.

To cut the fuel bills and ensure long-term supplies, the FoE calls for, a reduction in demand by measures like insulating homes and ways of saving energy, as well as support for the UK's developing renewable energy sources.

The more people are aware of how it has changed and begin to do something, the better for everyone. Carol

The interdependence of trees and insects comes to mind in a report by Butterfly Conservation that investigates the food supply of a rare butterfly. The loss of the English elm from Dutch elm disease has affected the numbers of the White-letter Hairstreak. This butterfly feeds on elm flowers and is now on the DEFRA UK 'priority' register as a result of its scarcity. Efforts are being made to find a substitute within the elm family that is resistant to Dutch elm disease. A report this year by the Butterfly Conservation Hampshire and Isle of Wight Branch into different elm varieties... Continue reading
