Needed: Green Thumb 5.7.2015 Asian Age: Editorial
Tonnes of waste prevented from being dumped in 2010 due to compositing and recycling efforts Here is a look at the current development pattern vis-a-vis green concerns The just released socio economic census reminds us that still it is miles to go on the development front. A majority of population in country still lives in villages where a vast majority is deprived of developmental benefits. At present, metropolitan agglomerations and industrial cities in India have attracted village folks in quest of employment and a better life. However, perhaps they have not been able to provide the desired better life. As many of them have crossed the carrying capacity, have huge population resource imbalance, and the cities are facing environmental problems. It is a good idea to have several smart cities, but mostly the idea is not realised in its totality. The drinking water woes of Dwarka sub-city in Delhi is the best example. I am not sure if in the present form it qualifies to be a smart city. But the fact ...

Prince Charles: To limit climate change we will need to see profound changes 3.7.2015 Guardian: Environment

Read the heir to throne’s ‘Rewiring the economy’ speech in full, in which he addresses the challenges of climate change, sustainable development and economic reform


As you are all very well aware, even if many others may not be, 2015 is a vital year for the future of humanity. Targets, plans and timetables being agreed this year, in Addis Ababa, New York and Paris, will be absolutely critical in ensuring peoples’ – and Nature’s – long-term health, wealth and security. So we must all hope and pray for the right outcomes.

But what happens then? Achieving the targets and goals arising from these historic global gatherings is going to require integrated action across all sectors. And that is not something we have ever come close to achieving in the past.

Observer Ethical Awards 2015 winners: Coronation Street 3.7.2015 Guardian: Environment
The popular soap opera, winner of the Film and Television Award in partnership with Bafta, on becoming the cleanest show on TV “I don’t think we could have got greener cobbles,” says Kieran Roberts, executive producer of Coronation Street, surveying the hallowed ground. When the whole production moved across town to Media City two years ago, 54,000 cobblestones were acquired from derelict Salford streets and upcycled into service on the world’s longest-running soap. And it is that kind of detail that has won the programme the inaugural Ethical Award for Film and Television (with Bafta and the Bafta Albert Consortium, the production industry’s leader on sustainability). “Relocating to Trafford gave us so many opportunities to look at the way we make our programme,” he says. He’s standing in front of the façade of the Rovers Return – the interior is housed in Studio One, now illuminated by LED lighting, which is 90% more efficient than the old tungsten ...

Out on the piss? Danish festival recycles urine to make beer 2.7.2015 The Guardian -- Front Page

Organisers of Roskilde festival plan to collect 25,000 litres of waste liquid to fertilise barley crops that will ultimately be ‘beercycled’ into pilsner

Under a cloudless sky, shirtless Vikings with plastic cups of beer in hand are queuing excitedly along a patch of sawdust-covered earth to urinate in a metal trough. Their “contributions” are being collected in specially designed storage tanks, which will then be transported to nearby fields to fertilise malting barley for brewing beer.

“From piss to pilsner” is a new initiative being launched at Roskilde – northern Europe’s largest music festival – in Zealand, Denmark, this week. Organisers hope to collect 25,000 litres of urine from more than 100,000 festivalgoers.
