Naomi Klein: Climate Change "Not Just About Things Getting Hotter" 4.2.2016 Truthout - All Articles
A salt truck drives through Times Square in New York City during the blizzard that took place on January 23, 2016. (Photo: blvdone / Shutterstock.com ) A week and a half ago, just as a blizzard was barreling up the East Coast, I traveled to my hometown, Canandaigua, NY, and before a standing-room-only audience of more than 400 at Finger Lakes Community College, had a conversation with author and climate activist Naomi Klein. Our talk was part of the George M. Ewing Forum, named in honor of the late editor and publisher of our local newspaper. He was a worldly and informed man, dedicated to good talk and a lively exchange of ideas. The forum brings to town a variety of speakers each year, some of them from the area, others not. The Finger Lakes region is a beautiful part of the country. As has often been said, it runs on water, and as I grew up, there was an increasing realization that what we have is an invaluable natural resource we could be in danger of losing. Over the years, the threats have grown ...

OUTSTANDING GREEN STORIES  Michigan: Rick Snyder channels the Wise Men of Chelm  written by Brainwrap: “One of the stories about the people of Chelm was about a playground located near the top of a cliff. Every once in awhile, a child would fall off the cliff and injure themselves on the ground below. The Wise Men of Chelm came up with an ingenious solution to the problem: They built a hospital at the bottom of the cliff. That way, the children could be rushed into the emergency room quickly for medical treatment. I was reminded of this story when reading  the following AP article posted moments ago:  Michigan Gov. ...

Closing This Nuclear Plant Could Cause an Environmental Disaster 3.2.2016 Mother Jones
The Diablo Canyon nuclear power plant sits by the scenic hills overlooking the California coast, a few hours' drive north of Los Angeles. It's the state's only remaining nuclear plant (after the San Onofre plant was closed in 2013), and it's responsible for about one-tenth of the state's electricity, serving more than 3 million homes and businesses. Since construction on the plant began in the late 1960s, Diablo Canyon has been a focal point of the nationwide controversy over nuclear power. In 1981, roughly 2,000 protesters (including the singer-songwriter Jackson Browne) were arrested at the construction site. Ever since, the plant has faced opposition from environmental groups like the Sierra Club and Friends of the Earth . But now, the plant is attracting an unlikely wave of support from some of the country's most prominent environmentalists and climate change scientists. Last week, in an effort to ensure that Diablo Canyon isn't shut down in the near future, this new coalition sent a letter to Gov. ...

Brexit would return Britain to being 'dirty man of Europe' 3.2.2016 Guardian: Environment

Leading group of environmentalists warns that leaving the European Union would mean a return to filthy beaches, foul air and weak conservation laws

Britain risks becoming the “dirty man of Europe” again with filthy beaches, foul air and weak conservation laws if it leaves the European Union, a group of leading environmentalists warned on Wednesday.

The steering committee of the new E4E (Environmentalists for Europe) group includes former ministers, a former EU commissioner and a former head of the Environment Agency. It will work with green groups to persuade people that leaving the EU could set back the UK’s nature protection and prevention of pollution many years. The UK’s referendum on EU membership may come as soon as June.

In a 2013 Tedx talk , media artist and University of NSW professor Sarah Kenderdine spoke about the threats faced by cultural heritage around the world, from politically motivated destruction to climate change and mass tourism. ‘We must find strategies not only to preserve our heritage but to let its stories be rediscovered and reinvented,’ she said. ‘This is both an artistic and technical challenge.’ Kenderdine’s latest collaborative work, Look Up Mumbai , is an immersive, site-specific installation which opens at Mumbai’s Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya museum on Wednesday, and celebrates the city’s spectacular architectural heterogeneity.
