Fracketeering: how capitalism is power-hosing the last drops of value out of us all 30.6.2015 The Guardian -- Front Page
Once you’ve mined the earth and milked the service industries, what is there left to frack? Us, that’s what – with everything from admin charges and estate agent fees to blockbuster premiums and ‘cakeage’ Fracking. Could there be a more perfect model for how we’re getting rinsed by this current conspiracy of government and commerce? In a world turned upside down, “conservative” now means the absolute opposite of “leaving things as they are”. Conservative means changing everything. It means dismantling things and selling off the bits. It means drilling into our lives and extracting the marrow. Conservatism and conservation are now about as far apart as it’s possible to get. Friends of Conservation are the ones protecting the countryside. The ones who stand around self-consciously in terrible fancy dress, holding passive-aggressive placards in praise of the noble, selfless badger. Or basically any mammal that looks good in a ...

Why the US recycling industry is feeling down in the dumps 27.6.2015 Guardian: Environment
Falling oil prices, a strong US dollar and a weakened Chinese economy are combining to make the global business of recycling less profitable than ever Tucked in the woods 50km north of Washington is a plant packed with energy-guzzling machines that can make even an environmentalist’s heart sing – giant conveyor belts, sorters and crushers saving a thousand tonnes of paper, plastic and other recyclables from reaching landfills each day. The 24-hour operation is a sign that after three decades of trying, a culture of kerbside recycling has become ingrained in cities and counties across the United States. Happy Valley, however, it is not. Once a profitable business for cities and private employers alike, recycling in recent years has become a money-sucking enterprise. The District of Columbia, Baltimore and many counties in between are contributing millions annually to prop up one of the nation’s busiest facilities here – but it is still losing money. In fact, almost every facility like it in the country is ...

Antarctic biodiversity faces increased threats despite isolation, study finds 25.6.2015 The Guardian -- Front Page

The continent and its waters are home to more than 8,000 species with up to 90% endemic, but human activities are taking a toll on its ecosystems

The Antarctic and Southern oceans are teeming with life, yet protection measures are weak as the continent faces increased threats from fishing, tourism and science programs, according to a report by scientists reviewing recent studies.

The lead author of the report published in the journal Nature, Professor Steven Chown of Monash University, characterised the biodiversity outlook for Antarctica and the Southern Ocean as being “no better than that for the rest of the globe”, despite its relative isolation.

Lessons from Tbilisi’s unhappy hippo | Jules Howard 19.6.2015 Guardian: Comment is Free
Pictures of dead animals on the streets of Georgia are harrowing, but zoos can be a force for good - just ask the African penguin from Torquay The penguin was born in Torquay, they say. Only last year it was moved from Devon to Tbilisi, to set up a new breeding colony. It was an African penguin, a species which lives 10,000 kilometres away in southern Africa. And this week it escaped its new home after flash floods obliterated the Georgian capital’s zoo. The penguin ended up 60 miles downriver, on the border with Azerbaijan. So what, really, was an African penguin doing in Europe at all? And what, exactly, was the point of it being held ...

Why are bees important? You asked Google – here’s the answer | Alison Benjamin 17.6.2015 Guardian: Comment is Free
Every day, millions of people ask Google some of life’s most difficult questions. In this series, our writers answer some of the most common queries Bees pollinate a third of everything we eat and play a vital role in sustaining the planet’s ecosystems. Some 84% of the crops grown for human consumption – around 400 different types of plants – need bees and other insects to pollinate them to increase their yields and quality. These include most fruits and vegetables, many nuts, and plants such as rapeseed and sunflowers that are turned into oil, as well as cocoa beans, coffee and tea. Crops grown as fodder for dairy cows and other livestock are also pollinated by bees . And it’s not only food crops that rely on bee pollination, cotton does as well. As a result, annual global crop pollination by bees is estimated to be worth $170bn . But beyond their monetary value for maintaining our fragile food supply, bees also make an invaluable contribution to ecosystems around the world. Seeds, fruits and berries ...
