Eco values & principles are such a hard slog in Scotland, don't I know it all too well. It would seem there is no political will or landed gentry support for anything other than "Trumpton on Sea" & saturating the legacy of golf. Forget about the spirit of the game Donald MacLeod Trump has seen to that case & point "Old Tom Morris" 'The Epitome Of A Gentleman' will be turning in his grave. Or the twee pheasant shooting or dear stalking, not that I mind golf, I play myself & I have on occasion done some clay pigeon shooting but never shot a live animal, only a circular clay disk they say resembles pigeon, mm might want to check into that? I paste Trump pictures on mine, helps my aim! Having a big enough target to shoot down, pun intended!!!
Climbing Eco Mountains Monty Python Style In Scotland
Can we only blame Nicholas Gordon the Son of Millionaire Gordon Crawford who recently received the handy down of the 6,000 acre Sporting Darach Estate in Dundonnell, near Ullapool, Caithness, Scotland for the kiboshing of Eco values & principles in the Highland Glens? Or the 20 others who originally objected, such as lyricist Sir Tim Rice who owns another estate nearby for reasons I have failed to investigate but why would 20 odd folk object to something that I presume would excel in meeting Eco Environmentally Sustainable value & principles? With a view of offering an alternative sustainable theme, especially if there was some restoration or rejuvenation thrown into the mix! "Sorry I know that's my pitch, retention of history, couldn't resist".
I once had a hypothetical debate with my 20 year old Son who's still waiting for his handy downs. He quite likes my dress sense so I'm quite relieved that he's happy & content with my clothes line, perhaps my previously vain pursuit of designer brands my satisfy some form of legacy, then again perhaps not. Then of course he is six foot five & sixteen stone, plus a size eleven, whereas I'm only a size ten, few inches smaller & not so many stones. Oh well Declend we'll endeavor to explore more sustainable & lasting legacies you can be proud of, my Son. But in all seriousness I hypothetically said Declend what if I were to fulfill what has turned into to my lifelong passion i.e. I finally built an Eco Green Community totally self sufficient & sustainable from newtech, cleanteach & renewables the likes of which the World has never seen before.
He pondered & deliberated for quite some more time, within the hypothesis 'well done Declend' there had been the additional contemplation & assumption that there would be property & real estate in close proximity of the World leading exemplar. He pondered & deliberated some more, well obviously Dad makes me feel old but the fact were like friends makes me feel slightly young again, even though just a wee bit. Well of course Dad he said if the property or real estate in close proximity wasn't as eco & sustainable it would possibly go down in value, of course, obviously. He seemed quite confident with his assumption.
I am by no means suggesting that Sir Tim Rice who might have a paddy by my Son's observation or suggestion & that fundamentally had been his agenda or driver & mode of operation or the other 20 plus objectors. But what has lead me to ponder & deliberate myself, if not alarm me over the past few days, has been various news articles that may not just impact the rural ideas of eco values & principles in that setting or context alone but fundamentally apply as much excruciating future pressure to urban built environments & the current energy solutions in an urban context. However those fortunate enough to contemplate an urban setting that maybe foresighted enough to have explored the idea of geothermal installations to keep you warm or shower them with comfort via a solar pv system, even put some wind in your turbine. Irrespective of what happens via the current Spanish Armada in energy hikes, spearheaded by Iberdrola but the pursuit of sustainable & totally self sufficient energy needs will be the only solution to "Take The Wind Out Any Energy Companies Sails".

Documentary "The Spirit of Business & The Values of Principles"
Aim to be Michael Moore of Scotland, not mythological, true to myself, and my beliefs for a very successful and progressive Scotland via unique innovation, ideas, concepts and visions, that will continue sustainable lasting and meaningful legacies for Scotland! Through macro and micro initiative and "Method of Operating" being ignored or traceable, organic locally sourced incentives being wasted. We will be exploring Banking, Finance irregularities, and catastrophic failures, plus continual self centred preservation monopolies. Through to humongous calamities by bureaucrats, politicians via continual errors in judgment, detrimental to our wealth and well-being. Plus business and planning processes and the inconsistencies via a multitude of planning and business applications that have no consistent logic or coherent pattern? Scholars and Academics, Historians, Physicists, Psychiatrists through to various Professionals from different specialist areas and fields and Business People, plus ordinary folk will be involved in the process and partake via interviews. Wishing to contribute towards making a meaningful difference, evoking, plus proving significant change for the better of us all.
The spirit, camaraderie, unity of the residents at Menie has not truly or honestly been captured. We intend to signify their courage and conviction in the face of belligerent and arrogant tyranny.

Thinking out of the box
Therefore I have formed a Co-operative/Consortium like motive operandi applying inherent value and intrinsic value towards it current pledgeholders, future shareholders and anticipated investors. Beyond the mere principle value of itself and Co-operative/Consortium Partners, who share the same values and principles towards executing, performing and delivering overwhelming and unconditional current pledgeholders value, future shareholders and anticipated investors value and returns, beyond mere monetary values and principles but more importantly Ecological and Environmental dividends and returns. Towards making a substantial and prolific difference, through evoking, plus provoking necessary change in attitude, behaviour, culture towards the ecology, environment and the built environment.

Extremely admirable the protest and statement Doctor David Kennedy made. I would concur that Donald Trump is by no means an exemplar or shinning idealogy for students to admire or follow.
