Green - areas over 500km2 over a km from a road. Amber areas over 250km2 over km from a road. Red areas over 100km2 over a km from a road. We have to stop building!
We need a halt to environmentally destructive megaprojects currently destroying vast tracts of our rapidly diminishing countryside, whether they be motorways or #HS2GravyTrain the £200bn+ Anglocentric, Londoncentric vanity project now trashing and polluting rural England.

@AvantiWestCoast How come that the pile of crap called Avanti West Coast is still allowed to operate train services I will never understand. I'm supposed to be on my way to Wolverhampton. So far I got as far as Euston.
I've been here for a while now; and train after train after train from Avanti is being cancelled! Due to staff shortages. Why don't they just hire more staff?! (No, it's not a train strike day).
And I'm not allowed to catch the next Birmingham train as it's operated by North Western Service. How come North West Rail is able to staff their trains and Avanti are not?! The information board very helpfully says "ask staff" - WHAT STAFF?!

The #HS2GravyTrain is all set to be a massive failure because we're in a #ClimateAndEcologicalEmergency, so Britain will have to move, this coming decade, to a #Degrowth economy, a #4DayWeek, lots more #WorkingFromHome, much less #LongDistanceCommuting…
For any chance of human survival through a #ClimateAndEcologicalEmergency that will soon bring crop failures, hunger, chaos, all airport expansion must be halted and air travel massively cut back.
#Birmingham #AirportExpansion…

The world pop'n is 7,850,000,000,000

UK pop'n is 68,000,000

#HS2 will cost £170,000,000,000 at least,
likely several times that

That works out at £22 for each human being on Earth
. . . or £2,500 for every person living in the UK
