LEND ME YOUR OUTRAGE! ALL of England's rivers are polluted according to the government's latest assessment. If you think this should not be happening in the 21st century then pls share this thread far and wide and let's try to embarrass gov into doing something about it. 1/13

In short, if you like clean rivers that aren't ecological dead zones completely lacking in , buy and eat food to reduce from pesticides etc (funnily enough, chemicals designed to kill things, kill things)

Forgot a rather important point: The main factors affecting river health, in order of the extent of their impacts, are: agricultural pollution, physical modification, wastewater discharges (raw human sewage no less), urban pollution, over abstraction and invasive species.

Frankly I'd be amazed is they don't go extinct (at least in the wild) during my children's (who both love Octonauts and their polar bear Captain Barnacles) lifetimes 😒

Just realised that I hadn't added @themeteor@twitter.com to my list of UK !

Fixed: ud.coop/ukmediacoops

(there is another that is about to become a co-op too but I can't remember who that is now...)

5) You should probably just add me as an editor on the WordPress so I can do most of the above myself :) (and fix anything else I spot that is wrong)

3) on that same page you should link "Open Collective, hosted by Platform6 Co-op" to opencollective.com/mutual-inte

4) you should also link through to the @Loomio@twitter.com websites (their .org platform and their .coop site about the co-op, um but the latter is down)

Hey @Mutualnterest@twitter.com a few small points:

1) you should create 2 twitter lists one of author-members and another of reader-members :)
2) On mutualinterest.coop/about-us @webarchcoop@twitter.com should be spelled Webarchitects (instead of Web-architects and Webarchitect) and be linked

I reckon @Sammallahti@twitter.com @IwanDoherty98@twitter.com should turn this thread into an article for @Mutualnterest@twitter.com (BTW what other Mutual Interest authors are on here?)

It's hard to find Canadians who dislike @mec@twitter.com, the venerable, beloved co-operative outdoor store modeled on REI. Millions of us have paid $5 to join the co-op and make it our first port of all for outdoor gear.

It's being sold to a rapacious American Private Equity fund.

Given it's mostly UK audience, this is something I felt didn't highlight nearly enough: the extent to which we've decimated (and continue to decimate) wildlife in the UK.

This (from 7 months ago) is to be applauded, but as people like @DonnachadhMc@twitter.com quite rightly point out @guardian@twitter.com still routinely e.g. have ads right next to articles about the , so there is still A LOT more to be done.
