Our children will never forgive us if we fail to curb our reliance on fossil fuels. A survey of 1,000 eight to 16-year-olds revealed earlier this year almost eight-in-10 children worry about climate change at least once a month. Some 68 per cent of children recognise the extreme impact climate change will have in the long-term.

Climate emergency: world 'may have crossed tipping points’


Warning of ‘existential threat to civilisation’ as impacts lead to cascade of unstoppable events

The world may already have crossed a series of climate tipping points, according to a stark warning from scientists. This risk is “an existential threat to civilisation”, they say, meaning “we are in a state of planetary emergency”.

In the past, extreme heating of 5C was thought necessary to pass tipping points, but the latest evidence suggests this could happen between 1C and 2C.

We might already have crossed the threshold for a cascade of interrelated tipping points

that we might have already lost control of the Earth’s climate

“It may mean that tipping points can occur in unexpected ways as there is no geological precedent for this rate of CO2 change.”

The toxic killers in our air too small to see - BBC Future

The biggest killer of all never makes the headlines, isn’t regulated, and is barely talked about beyond niche scientific circles (despite their best efforts to change that narrative): it’s nanoparticles.

PM2.5 may be too small to see, being roughly 30 times smaller than the width of a human hair. But, compared to a nanoparticle it’s a relative heavyweight. PM2.5 stomps in at 2,500 nanometres (nm), while the real killers are 100nm or below. This issue is that local authorities consider PM2.5 and any particle smaller than it to be the same – which means that often their reports underrepresent the true risks.

The science of why we should be concerned about the total number of particles that we breathe in, not just their mass, has been known for some time. In 2003, Surbjit Kaur was a young researcher finishing her Masters at Imperial College London, when her supervisor suggested she join the Dapple experiment (the Dispersion of Air Pollution and its Penetration into the

The families Going Present-Free at Christmas to Cut Down on Waste


‘People look miserable before Christmas. It saddens me more than anything – they’re either drunk or stressed to hell’

Some families are trying to combat the clutter and make festivities less stressful by cutting out presents – instead opting for homemade baking, virtual gifts or even just forgetting about it all and going on a long walk with the dog instead.

I’m not saying you shouldn’t stop using commercial flights or getting things shipped from China, but this is another area of your life worth reconsidering if you’re eco-conscious.

On this day, 17 June 1971, construction workers in New South Wales initiated a "green ban", refusing to build luxury houses over Kelly's Bush, the last open space in a suburb. Local women had been campaigning to save the park.

Despite a management threat to use scabs, the builders and residents won, and Kelly's Bush remains an open public reserve today.

A wave of green bans subsequently began which stopped billions of dollars of harmful development over the next four years.

This is a short history of these events: https://libcom.org/history/articles/kellys-bush-green-ban

Fertilizer plants emit 100 times more methane than reported -- ScienceDaily

Emissions of methane from the industrial sector have been vastly underestimated, researchers from Cornell University and Environmental Defense Fund have found.

Using a Google Street View car equipped with a high-precision methane sensor, the researchers discovered that methane emissions from ammonia fertilizer plants were 100 times higher than the fertilizer industry's self-reported estimate. They also were substantially higher than the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimate for all industrial processes in the United States.

C’è una forza che cresce giorno dopo giorno, che mette al centro la questione ambientale per costruire un’Europa completamente diversa, senza combustibili fossili e senza plastica, fondata sui diritti civili e sociali, sul lavoro pulito, sulla convivenza pacifica, sull’uguaglianza, sui diritti degli animali, per cambiare il Vecchio continente e salvare il nostro pianeta.
Il 26 maggio è il giorno in cui si deve decidere se continuare a fare finta di niente o se cominciare a cambiare tutto anche in Italia.
Il tempo è finito, non c’è un pianeta B. Alle elezioni europee Vota Europa Verde.

Yesterday in London and at other locations across the world mothers, fathers, grandparents, daughters, sisters and friends were #risingup together with @mothersriseup. With song, drums, thoughtful words and a lot of inspiration, determination and demonstration of unity we left with greatest feeling of hope. Such a beautiful day, such a gentle and persistent spirit. Thank you @mothersriseup for all the hard work creating such a wonderful day! WE WILL RISE, WE WILL KEEP ON RISING, WE WILL NEVER STOP, UNTIL THE FUTURE OF FUTURE GENERATIONS IS SECURED.⠀⠀

🇮🇹-Gran parte dei problemi legati all'enorme mole di rifiuti in plastica potrebbero essere evitati se solo non fossero prodotte e realizzate confezioni di questo tipo.
Mazzi d'aglio racchiusi in contenitori di polistirolo, non sarebbero meglio sfusi?

🇬🇧-Most of the problems related to the huge amount of plastic waste could be avoided if only these types of packaging were not produced and manufactured.

The largest accidental oil spill in history began in the Gulf of Mexico on April 20, 2010 - the Deepwater Horizon oil spill . Some 134 million gallons of oil were released and about 2,100 km of the U.S. Gulf Coast from Texas to Florida were coated with oil (Some sources suggest that the amount of oil released was much higher). It later emerged through documents released by Wikileaks that a similar incident had occurred on a BP-owned rig in the Caspian Sea in September 2008.⠀
.⠀
Thousands of birds, mammals, and sea turtles were plastered with leaked oil. A 2013 study of living dolphins in Barataria Bay, found that roughly half were extremely sick; many suffered from lung and adrenal disorders known to be linked to oil exposure. Some 1,400 whales and dolphins had been found stranded by the end of 2015. Though the number of dead animals had begun to taper off, substantial decreases in dolphin fertility persisted.⠀...

Plastic can take up to 600 years to degrade. They break apart into smaller fragments called "microplastics" which can be ingested by marine animals 🐳🐠🐬🐢
.
It's estimated that 100,000 marine animals die from plastics (the ones found and documented). Approximately 1 million sea birds have also died due to plastics.

Reusable items and prevention of plastic use is must 🌎
