    It cites the example of working with the Forestry Commission and Earth Observation Centre of Excellence to integrate data on the location of forests where logging has been licensed, along with the satellite data, to provide alerts almost in real time when trees have been illegally felled.

    Similarly, there have already been steps by the Environment Agency to identify where bare earth occurs on sloping fields in an effort to reduce soil erosion and river pollution.

    No money to help people have a career , home or keep vital industries such as Coal, Cars, Steel, Ships etc

    But loads of money to fine the plebs.
