    ‘A new study by independent bureau CE Delft claims that by shutting down three coal-fired power stations at the start of next year the Netherlands could meet the CO2 emissions target set by the Urgenda climate court verdict.

    In January 2019 research by the environmental planning agency Planbureau voor de Leefomgeving had said that under current plans, CO2 emissions would fall by around 21% of 1990 levels by the end of next year, against the Urgenda target of 25%.

    The new report, commissioned by environmental organisations Greenpeace, Natuur & Milieu and respiratory health organisation Longfonds, claims that if the government decided to close three coal-fired power stations, in addition to the planned closure of the Hemwegcentrale in Amsterdam at the end of 2019, the target could be met.’

    Is that first one a quail? I don’t believe that our Florida quail have the little thing on their head.

      You are thinking of the Northern bobwhite (or Virginia quail), this appears to be a Gambel’s quail.

      I have many bobwhite on my property. I worked to create suitable habitat for them, and their return and breeding has been very successful. Love seeing the chicks following their mother around the yard.

    But the 5th photo prompts a frightening question: Does Tony now have a quadcopter, in order to carry out his sinister plot of species destruction:
