  1. Anyone who believes in the environment and sovereignty while signing trade agreements with ISDS are insane!!

    The Canadian government has been ordered to pay US$7 million plus compound interest from 2007 to US concrete company Bilcon, which sued the government using ISDS in the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).

    Bilcon initiated an ISDS case after a proposed quarry in an environmentally sensitive area in Nova Scotia was rejected on the basis of a recommendation by a joint federal-provincial government environmental assessment panel.

  2. So much of the planet is burning, including very important natural forests that can never be replaced! Amazon, Siberia and the Arctic!

    The Arctic is BURNING, creating a smoke cloud bigger than the European Union!!

    The planet hasn’t seen anything like it in 10,000 years — July was the hottest month ever recorded! This isn’t global warming. It’s global scorching. And it’s going to get much, much worse

    Its not just the Amazon burning. — The 2019 Siberian wildfires began in July 2019 in poorly accessible areas of northern Krasnoyarsk Krai, Sakha Republic and Zabaykalsky Krai, all in Siberia, Russia. By the end of the month the size of the fires reached 2.6 million hectares.
    On July 31, 2019, Russian authorities reported that 3 million hectares (7.4 million acres; 30,000 km2) were on fire, an area roughly the size of Belgium. According to Greenpeace, 12 million ha (30 million acres; 120,000 km2) had burned since the beginning of 2019.

    The smoke from the fires has affected air quality in much of Siberia, including cities as far west as Chelyabinsk and Yekaterinburg. Air travel was also disrupted.[4] According to NASA data, on 31 July the smoke from burning Siberian forests reached the territory of Alaska and, possibly mixed with smoke from local fires, reached the western coast of Canada.

    As most of the area affected is in uninhabited and/or poorly accessible areas, most of the fires are not being attended by firefighters. As of 6 August, Russia’s Aerial Forest Protection Service was fighting 161 fires on 140,000 ha (350,000 acres), and only monitoring others. The smoke from the fires is making aerial firefighting unsafe.

  3. Our cliimate is going down the gurgler sadly I fear as no-one has the balls to step up any more not even Jacinda.

    She has gorgotten our ‘nuclear moment’ it seems and we can only hope someone wakes her up soon from her slumber; – before we are all done.

    Quote; – “Tiny plastic particles from clothing, tyres clogging oceans: report”

    This report shows that tyre particulates are already found to be freely released in the tyre dust as we drive on our roads now.

    Then we are advised these plastic particles are then washed off our roads into our drains, streams, rivers, lakes and aquifers, and finally into our drinking water as we heard all last week over the press.

    So we road users are part of the problem now!

    Sorry but EV vehicles will still emit the same tyre dust toxins as regular gasoline vehicles do.

    Get rail going as trains use steel wheels on a steel track and don’t use tyres, simple eh?

    So why doesnt the media focus on that?.
