Rotterdam Implements Energy Transition and Climate Measures 25.10.2016 Green on HuffingtonPost.com
Part 3 of a series on Rotterdam's efforts to become a sustainable and "climate-proof" city. The city and port of Rotterdam. Rotterdam, the Netherlands--Can the city of Rotterdam cut its CO2 emissions in half by 2025? In order to succeed, the city will need to increase its production of renewable energy and expand its district heating network. The city is also striving to make its economy more energy efficient, and reduce vehicle emissions.

In a world breaking monthly temperature records, advertising cars should be criminal 16.9.2016 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
A free daily newspaper targetting transit riders should never be wrapped in car ads. On Monday the whole front of Montreal's Metro paper promoted Kia. All of page two and the back of a paper targeted at the city's transit riders also promoted an unhealthy, lethal, inefficient and utterly unsustainable mode of transportation. Incredibly, public transit systems regularly glorify the private automobile. Car ads are not uncommon on buses or in metros. During a trip to Philadelphia a few years ago, the great hall at the city's beautiful old train station was covered with a 50 ft x 30 ft car ad. It seemed more than a little out of place. Would you see a promotion for trains at a car ...

California's War on the Homeless: From Streetside Attacks to Policies of Dehumanization 16.8.2016 Truthout - All Articles
(Image: Lauren Walker / Truthout ) Treating homelessness as a population management problem for social services takes focus away from the economic conditions causing chronic homelessness among certain classes of people. And attacks on the homeless are just an extension of the state-sponsored violence against this "disposable population." (Image: Lauren Walker / Truthout ) A man experiencing homelessness in San Diego, Angelo De Nardo, died after being attacked on Moreno Boulevard on July 3, 2016. The assailant had set De Nardo on fire after driving a spike into his head and chest. Another homeless man was critically injured in San Diego's Midway District the next morning. A few hours later, on July 4 ("Independence Day"), Shawn Mitchell Longley, an unsheltered homeless man, was found dead in Ocean Beach. Two days later, a flaming towel was thrown on Dionico Derek Vahidy; a witness grabbed the towel off the 23-year-old homeless San Diego resident, but Vahidy died of burns four days later. On July 15, on ...
