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.

Victoria Falls dries to a trickle after worst drought in a century

"For decades Victoria Falls, where southern Africa’s Zambezi river cascades down 100 metres into a gash in the earth, have drawn millions of holidaymakers to Zimbabwe and Zambia for their stunning views."

"But the worst drought in a century has slowed the waterfalls to a trickle, fuelling fears that climate change could kill one of the region’s biggest tourist attractions."

"While they typically slow down during the dry season, officials said this year had brought an unprecedented decline in water levels."

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%.

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.

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].

Yesterday #climatejustice activists have blocked a cruise ship in #Kiel, #Germany.
They've done so by small boats and climbing.

In their cominique they explain their reasons, such as:

We have enough ships and money to travel around for holiday, but not enough to safe refugees. This is unacceptable. Cruise ships consume a lot of ressources incl. fossil fuel and by that spit out toxic gases and greenhouse gases. In times of a #climatecrisis, neither this is acceptable. Workers on the ships are heavily exploited, while very few become rich.

Cruise ships are run on an exploitive system that is destroyn our enviornment.

Let's stop them! #smashcruiseshit

(ofcourse did the police came to counter their action, but at least for now, it is still blocked)
