‘Disappointing and surprising’: Why isn’t this a climate election in the UK?
Jonathan Watts

It is very simple. most of the largest parties donors in the UK see it as antipathetic towards their business interests and Labour and Conservatives have decided that they will pay no attention. Most of the media collude in this. Other parties are suppressed by a combination of funding and FPTP.

A campaign calling for the protection of Indigenous peoples’ customary forests in Indonesia’s easternmost region of Papua has gone viral, with the campaign’s poster shared nearly 3 million times on Instagram.

The poster contains a link into an online petition that calls for the revocation of an oil palm concession threatening to clear the ancestral forests of the Awyu tribe (also spelled Auyu).

WTF, how an undercover police officer infiltrated a group of climate activists.

BBC podcast:
"Undercover, the Spycops"
https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p0h37n6m
It is well framed and explained, making this a very accessible audio documentary.

The brain can store a lot of data, but pollution will actually mess up your head in a bad way.

Air pollution exposure tied to heightened dementia risk, by Eric W. Dolan June 3, 2024

"...Recent research has suggested that environmental factors, such as air pollution, may contribute to the development of dementia. Air pollution, already known to cause cardiovascular and respiratory diseases, might also promote brain inflammation and accelerate cognitive decline. This study aimed to investigate these potential links in Denmark, a country with relatively low but still significant air pollution levels..."

Now imagine the pollution levels in the US, and how much more illness we have because of it.

The loko i’a system of native fishponds in Hawai‘i has for generations provided sustenance to Indigenous communities, supported fish populations in surrounding waters, and generally improved water quality.

These benefits, long understood by native Hawaiians, have now been confirmed by scientists in a new study that looked at the restoration of one such fishpond.

Michigan Bottlers Still Get Free Water, Despite Governor’s Tough Talk

When Gretchen Whitmer campaigned for #Michigan governor in 2018, she took aim at Michigan’s bottled #water industry — and the state policy that gave it unfettered access to free water.

In the years since, little has changed.

A new study suggests that the loss of plant species due to climate change and human activities could release vast amounts of stored carbon into the atmosphere, potentially accelerating climate change.

The researchers estimate that losing plant diversity worldwide could release up to 146 billion metric tons of carbon from vegetation, equivalent to more than 12 years of global car emissions.
