What Italy's nuclear referendum means for climate change | Mark Lynas 15.6.2011 Guardian: Environment
Voters overwhelmingly backed anti-nuclear campaigners' demands to block any new atomic power in Italy Ask a stupid question and you'll get a stupid answer. That's what happened in the Italian referendum on nuclear power on Monday, where voters overwhelmingly backed anti-nuclear campaigners' demands to block any new atomic power in Italy. Referendums are not a good way to set energy policy, nor many other aspects of national policy either – if a referendum were held on capital punishment in Britain, a hefty majority would support bringing back hanging. The Italian result needs to be seen in the context of a wider European political debate where anti-nuclear campaigners – led by the greens – have been successful in discrediting nuclear power. No doubt a referendum in Austria would have the same result, while the governments of Switzerland and Germany have already decided to phase out their nuclear plants altogether in response to the Fukushima accident in Japan.

Observer Ethical Awards winners 2011 12.6.2011 Guardian: Environment
Welcome to the sixth Observer Ethical Awards. Here we introduce the activists who have won this year – from one of Britain's greatest thinkers to the campaigners who created a little piece of heaven in Essex Conservation Award: Thameside Nature Park The act of conservation is often taken rather literally as preserving something that's already there. But this year's Conservation Award, kicking off the Observer Ethical Awards, in association with Ecover, goes to a local wildlife organisation seeking to create something new and ambitious. Essex Wildlife Trust's plan is to turn an 845-acre landfill site on the north bank of the Thames into a living landscape for wildlife and people. It could so easily not have happened. Thurrock doesn't have an abundance of green space and industrial creep is strongly in evidence – there is a move afoot to build a huge container port nearby.
