Paul Mobbs and Mobbs’ Environmental Investigations & Research

I've been working with community groups for over thirty years. Since 1992 I have worked as a freelance researcher, writer and environmental consultant specialising in the needs of community-based campaigns, NGOs and small companies. This site provides access to my recent public work, as well as a selection of my past written work, presentations, handouts, and other material.

Paul Mobbs/MEIR, 26th November 2019:

A response to the Welsh ‘National Development Framework 2020-2040’

A report commissioned for the Free Range Network by the Llandeilo Green House, it details the ecological case against the Welsh Government's ‘National Development Framework 2020-2040’. The report takes elements of the NDF’s policy objectives and shows – with reference to present-day data and research evidence – how we can easily invalidate the claims of the NDF when we look at their impact on ecological and social sustainability.

CroughtonWatch, 3rd October 2019:

How Donald Trump’s Border Wall Helped to Terminate the USAF Croughton ‘Joint Intelligence Analysis Centre’ (JIAC)

After five years of work and awareness-raising on Croughton’s role in the “War on Terror”, CroughtonWatch celebrates the demise of plans for an upgraded surveillance and intelligence centre, implicated in human rights abuses and war crimes.

Why the Mobile Phone is Incompatible with an Ecological Lifestyle

A poster summary of my new ‘work-in-progress’ workshop/presentation being prepared for this Autumn – on the ecological footprint of mobile phones and why, from zero hours contracts to brain tumors, they are cannot be said to conform to any measure of an ecological/sustainable lifestyle.

The Tufton Street Brexit Nexus (‘public version’ release)

‘The Tufton Street Brexit Nexus’ is an analysis of the political and business lobby surrounding ‘Brexit’. It looks at little-known groups, such as the Mont Pelerin Society, at the heart of that network; but its core focus are a number of right-wing lobbyists who all have offices around Tufton Street, only a short walk from Parliament, whose finances are effectively ‘dark’. As no one has yet taken-up this story I have chosen to release a ‘public version’ of the research, in case it is of use to anyone else.

The Website is back

After a long hiatus, in part due to a serious illness, I am now resuming work – and as a first step in that process, there has been a major overhaul of my work website. A large proportion of the old, truly out-of-date content has been deleted (sorry!). Instead I will be developing some significant new work over the next 12 to 18 months.
