Can cities save our wild bees? 7.10.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
Imagine youre a bee. Youve spent winter in your tiny underground nest. The light levels change, signalling the arrival of spring and out you come, hungry but theres no food. What should be a blossoming garden is all tight buds. The end. I love bees. Everyone I know loves bees. And everyone knows bees are on the decline. But could it be that cities will come to their rescue? That question has fascinated me since I first came across the Insect Pollinators Initiative (IPI), a nationwide research collaboration with the singular aim of exploring the lives of bees and other pollinators. Digging deeper into the IPIs various projects, I discovered the Urban Pollinators Project a research collaboration spread across nine cities in the UK that wants to find out as much as possible about the pollinators that are gradually moving into our cities. These, after all, form the bedrock of our food supply wherever we live, and their absence would leave our daily diets drastically ...

Greenpeace claims can only be rubbished: Patrick Moore 2.10.2014 DNA: Top News
You've rubbished Greenpeace India (GPI)'s claims in a report in August about pesticides in India's top tea brands Greenpeace's claims can only be rubbished. This is a continuation of GP's scare tactics and disinformation which abandons science and logic in favour of emotion and sensationalism. GPI is misleading people by not revealing details of the raw data on which it has based its report. Such NGOs manufacture misleading reports and are a threat to India's effort to safeguard its food and energy security. That sounds exactly like the Intelligence Bureau (IB) report against GP which created waves I know that the IB report called GPI "a threat to national economic security." And the report was right. GPI doesn't have the money and resources for its protests and activities. Most of it comes from Europe. Obviously, like any other country, India wants to know if this is coming from inimical sources. Look at this study on tea. Why did GPI choose to take the samples to Europe for testing despite several ...

Can Narendra Modi bring the solar power revolution to India? 30.9.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page

Indian PMs renewables ambitions are big, like the Gujarat Solar Park, Asias biggest, but coal use is still increasing

From the observation tower in the Thar desert and as far as the eye can see, the dark blue arrays of a million solar panels can be seen sitting silently on the red dust. The Charanka solar park in Gujarat is an ultra-mega power project the Indian governments phrase and the biggest in Asia.

But unlike the hundreds of coal plants and their noxious smokestacks being built in the country, the only danger linked to the solar panels are the snakes and scorpions that slink and scuttle between the sparse shrubs, posing a minor hazard to those who dust off the panels after dusk.
