MPs have voted down the Prime Minister’s Brexit deal and a no-deal Brexit looks more likely than ever.
Leaving the European Union without a deal would be disastrous for our environment.
For example, it could:
make it harder to punish polluters, leave companies free to sell chemicals that may threaten our health and environment, or leave us without anywhere to send our waste for recycling – a return to the dark days of burning and burying all our rubbish. Some of the impacts of a no-deal Brexit could last for years. But even short-term problems like a rise in air pollution from queues at our ports will have an immediate impact on an environment that’s already struggling.
What’s worse is that we won’t even be able to measure the damage or stop the government from ignoring environmental laws until a proper environmental watchdog has been set up.
This isn’t about leaving or remaining in the EU. This is about preventing a no-deal Brexit that threatens our wildlife, health and environment.
Please sign our petition urging party leaders to rule out a dirty no-deal Brexit.
Pretty sure UK politicians are rubbing their proud hands in anticipation for all those things to happen...
BTW, just finished watching the first episode of Black Mirror and it was shite, but I guess the fact that I'm vegan helped with that. Anyway, very disappointed after all the hype. Hope other episodes are better, since it's an anthology.
Sorry for the unimportant off-topic.
"There is no hope. Knowing that humans die untimely, by the millions, simply makes me feel a bit better. If more than, say, 2000 were killed in one go, I could smile. 20000? I might throw a party..."

Lomedin: Learned by chance that Kat Von D is vegan. Didn't have a clue who she was before.

Vegan: I'm on an antinatilist group and only found out about her on that. Had no idea who she was before as never heard of her.

Lomedin: I guess they were roasting her for having a baby? Hahaha

Vegan: Yep. Apparently she used to be antinatilist.

cybernaut: Well, it can be a little hard for me to come here sometimes because of how negative things can get here. I realize there's much to be negative about, but it's still hard for me all the same.
