Arctic News: The changing face of planet Earth



Image/photo
The inhabitants of planet Earth are in the process of destroying the habitability of their world through the perpetration of the largest mass extinction of species since 66 million years ago, when a large asteroid impacted Earth, and 55 million years since the Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum (PETM) reaching 5–8°C. The late Holocene-Anthropocene climate change represents an unprecedented event, triggering a fast shift in climate

We're living in a microplastic world.
Plastic was the furthest thing from Gregory Wetherbee’s mind when he began analyzing rainwater samples collected from the Rocky Mountains. “I guess I expected to see mostly soil and mineral particles,” said the US Geological Survey researcher. Instead, he found multicolored microscopic plastic fibers.

New rightwing council fails to reverse policy of former mayor Manuela Carmena

Barely a week after Madrid’s rightwing council began rolling back the city’s low emission zone a judge has ruled that the traffic restrictions must be maintained.

As of today, drivers of non-exempt vehicles will once again be fined €90 if they enter the 1,166-acre zone in the centre of the Spanish capital.

South Africa Government sued over Eskom, Sasol air pollution by groundWork and the Vukani Environmental Justice Movement in Action


Government is being sued for failing to crack down on some of the world’s worst air pollution emitted by power plants operated by Eskom and refineries owned by Sasol.

The case was filed in the high court in Pretoria by groundWork, an environmental rights organisation, and the Vukani Environmental Justice Movement in Action, according to a statement sent by their lawyers, the Centre for Environmental Rights.

The so-called Highveld Priority Area, which includes much of Mpumalanga province and part of Gauteng, is the site of 12 coal-fired Eskom power plants, a Sasol oil refinery and coal-to-fuel plant owned by the company.

A Greenpeace study for the third quarter of 2018 showed that Mpumalanga had the worst nitrogen dioxide emissions from power plants of any area in the world. In 2016, the air pollution caused between 305 and 650 early deaths in the region, according to a study commissioned by the Centre for Environment... Show more...
