United Nations Day, October 24th 2014

Posted Thu, 23 Oct 2014 20:35:00 GMT by Paul Robinson

How to celebrate UN Day? We suggest it is entirely up to you. Sit down and read uplifting material; worry about progress in one part of the world; get up and volunteer in any way you think right; object to one aspect of the organisation just as everybody else seems to do; whatever --- enjoy the chance it gives you to be universal!

Green grow the rushes, oh, and the world’s crops, despite all the bad weather that is thrown at them. All because of careful and progressive family farmers.

If you appreciate the buzzing bee, the sight of cheetah hunting, or the thought of stroking a manta ray, this summit is essential reading. It begins today, so we can but hope.

A book for Earth Timers? We don’t do reviews of books or movies, but maybe we should. After murder and corruption in the Amazon, this publication gives a true account of dirty deals on both sides. You can keep up with the news, or simply read this to discover the truth

World Rhino Day needs some action to reverse the situation that all species find themselves in. The thoughts of everybody have to be directed towards preventing the loss of animals and the use of rhino horn.

Global Warming’s final warning.

Global Warming’s final warning.

Posted Mon, 15 Sep 2014 11:59:00 GMT by JW Dowey

The NYC Climate Summit is building up pressure. This press release is a significant document, alongside all the crushing evidence of an out-of-control climate, involving many prominent people who want the politicians to make their own impact. It’s from 160 leading environmentalists from 44 countries, and, believe me, we all approve of the action.

When can we expect a conference to make headway against the mass of polluters and their investment in fossil fuels. So far, only threats of storm and drought seem to have had any effect. Maybe the earth itself will persuade us to finally change our ways as we wait for the next disastrous extreme weather event. Hopefully, we can use the next conference to ''make waves'' as the evidence becomes overwhelming.

Vaccines for badgers (against bTB)

Vaccines for badgers (against bTB)

Posted Fri, 22 Aug 2014 10:39:42 GMT by JW Dowey

The first attempt at large scale vaccination of badgers in the UK could finally lay to rest the hoary old argument about whether cattle are often infected with bTB by this particular animal. Then again, it could simply spread the discussion to other countries and to other valid points in the same way as perturbation causes the badgers to flee.

Primary forests-the action and the policy

Primary forests-the action and the policy

Posted Tue, 19 Aug 2014 05:55:09 GMT by Dave Armstrong

The animals and plants of the primary forests are those we are desperately trying to save. Their habitats are the primary forest, whether taiga or tropical. To conserve those myriad habitats, these policies and actions are recommended for immediate use by you, the people who can turn the tide and keep the last 5% of the once-great green forest.

Protect penguins from habitat loss

Protect penguins from habitat loss

Posted Fri, 08 Aug 2014 09:08:00 GMT by Paul Robinson

The Antarctic is, or was, the unspoilt continent. To preserve some of its pristine condition, it should be quite easy to keep the oil, the mining the fishing and, most of all, the greed at arm’s length. For the sake of penguins and healthy, sustainable fish stocks, we have to start this difficult process.

Elephant wars for Kruger

After the International Tiger Day, more 'big game' is in trouble. The targeting of elephant in South Africa would bring matters there to a head, as a final solution must be found to this serious lack of conservation success for both rhino and elephant.

International Tiger Day 2014

International Tiger Day: The remaining 3,200 tigers from 6 sub-species are lucky to be free, but also suffer severely from human interference and frequent attack. It is our job above all to ensure that the distinct tigers are able to breed and reproduce the animals that can survive in their 6 distinct niches. Without help, I'm afraid there is no future whatsoever. The Far East is responsible for huge losses of tigers (elephants, bears, sharks and rhinos, too) and "breeding programs" have to be curtailed when they are obviously simply selling tiger parts. Awareness and ultimate protection will all contribute to a successful defense of these last of the really big cats.

More news from Asia today.In what way do nuclear weapons affect our environmental aims? Perhaps we are all suffering from the results of previous testing. It remains to be seen exactly how important these moves towards a nuclear free world work out, after Chernobyl's disastrous aftermath and the possibilities of Fukushima's contamination of the Pacific.

We so rarely consider the earth in all its guises. The environment is our atmosphere, our soil and our water, and all the other bits that make us the fabulous blue planet from the outside. Today is the day to consider just one or many things to do - for the whole environment.
