Highly successful nature writer Robert Macfarlane has tweeted his support for the Green Party in the European election.
The @TheGreenparty are currently polling ahead of the Tories in the upcoming European elections. A vote for them next Thursday is anti-Brexit, anti-austerity—& puts nature, climate & people together & first. More on the Green surge here:— Robert Macfarlane (@RobGMacfarlane) 17 May 2019
He had earlier released the following statement showing his support
"If you want to see an end to air pollution and an end to fossil-fuel dependency; if you want to see the recovery of biodiversity and the growth of a Green New Deal; if you believe that social justice and environmental justice are closely aligned, then I'm with you. I'll be voting Green on Thursday May 23rd - join me! It's time."
Macfarlane is famous for his works that explore the human place in nature and his latest book Underland is described as a work of huge range and power, and a remarkable new chapter in Macfarlane's long-term exploration of landscape and the human heart.
