No, ministers – more surveillance will not make us safer 3.2.2015 The Guardian -- Front Page
British politicians keep trying to sneak the Snoopers’ Charter into law – even when it is obvious that the last thing you need when looking for a neeedle in a haystack is more hay It’s almost Groundhog Day . You can tell, because the same bad internet ideas keep resurfacing, as though everything we fought for has been wiped off the slate overnight and we’ve woken up back at square one. Like the Snooper’s Charter – which four Lords tried to ram into an undebated amendment to the security bill last week, despite the fact that it was effectively identical to several different earlier incarnations, each of which was dismissed as a dumb, ineffective, overreaching load of Orwellian nightmare-fuel. The fact that some deranged killers murdered some free speech advocates doesn’t make mass surveillance (as opposed to, you know, keeping track of jihadis who are known to be planning acts of terror, which the French spooks failed to do, possibly because they were too busy rolling around in their own mass-surveillance ...

To conservationists such as myself, who have been working in the world’s fourth largest island to preserve the country’s forests and wildlife, many of which evolved uniquely and are found nowhere else, the limited awareness of Madagascar’s natural riches leaves us scratching our heads.

Climate Change: PM Modi for credit to green initiatives 20.1.2015 DNA: Mumbai
Pitching for a paradigm shift in the global approach towards climate change, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Monday  instead of only focussing on emission cuts, due credit should be given to efforts made for clean energy generation and conservation. Underlining that focus should shift from "carbon credit" towards "green credit", he singled out solar energy, saying it needs to be integrated with hybrid system of energy to make it useful. He favoured setting up of a consortium of nations having potential in solar energy which could join hands with India in innovation and cutting-edge research that would reduce the cost of solar energy, making it more accessible to people. Chairing the first meeting of the reconstituted 'Prime Minister's Council on Climate Change here, Modi said that "instead of focussing on emissions and cuts alone, focus should shift on what we have done for clean energy generation, energy conservation and energy efficiency, and what more can be done in these areas," a PMO statement ...
