Berlin’s rubbish collectors say give time not stuff this Christmas

Greener ways of celebrating festive season
Berlin’s rubbish collection service is urging the city’s residents to cut down on their waste this Christmas by gifting time rather than material objects.

In an advertising campaign, BSR suggests the festive season could be more meaningful if people reduce their rubbish by shopping less, try to eat rather than throw away leftovers, and do a good turn for a neighbour.

Greenland ice losses rising faster than expected



Greenland is losing ice seven times faster than in the 1990s and is tracking the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's high-end climate warming scenario, which would see 400 million more people exposed to coastal flooding by 2100.

Climate change: Speed limits for ships can have 'massive' benefits


Cutting the speed of ships has huge benefits for humans, nature and the climate. A 20% reduction would cut greenhouse gases but also curb pollutants that damage human health such as black carbon and nitrogen oxides.

This speed limit would cut underwater noise by 66% and reduce the chances of whale collisions by 78%.

And yet we're going to waste a decade or more on a political vanity project called Brexit (where one of the slogans supporters often repeat is that Britain needs to grow more of its own food....). The children and grandchildren and grand-grandchildren of today's Brexiteers will one day ask, "why did you waste your time on Brexit instead of stopping the destruction of our environment?

Climate change could leave southern Britain ‘unable’ to support crops

Sea "boiling" with methane discovered in Siberia: "No one has ever recorded anything like this before"


We have reached the point of no return! Methane is significantly more dangerous foe speeding up the global warming than CO2.

Solar and Wind Power So Cheap They’re Outgrowing Subsidies

"For years, wind and solar power were derided as boondoggles. They were too expensive, the argument went, to build without government handouts."

"Today, renewable energy is so cheap that the handouts they once needed are disappearing."

"On sun-drenched fields across Spain and Italy, developers are building solar farms without subsidies or tax-breaks, betting they can profit without them. In China, the government plans to stop financially supporting new wind farms. And in the U.S., developers are signing shorter sales contracts, opting to depend on competitive markets for revenue once the agreements expire."

Greta Thunberg to US politicians: 'Sorry, you're not trying hard enough' | BBC News

"Don't invite us here to just tell us how inspiring we are without actually doing anything about it

...[this is] not about youth activism. This is not about us... we don't want to be heard. We want the science to be heard."

Instead of submitting a personal statement... she sent Congress a major report on global warming along with eight sentences of her own.

"I am submitting this report as my testimony because I don't want you to listen to me," she said. "I want you to listen to the scientists. And I want you to unite behind the science. And then I want you to take action."

In some places, like Victoria in Australia, students and public workers are being actively encouraged to walk out of school and work.

"We want our kids to be engaged in the world around them, so we don't think it's fair to criticise students for holding a peaceful protest about an issue as important as this" [government spokesman to Melbourne-based newspaper].

There was worldwide outcry when the Notre Dame cathedral was on fire. Why is there not the same level of outrage for the fires destroying the #AmazonRainforest?
