The animal that comes most readily to mind when thinking of the Arctic, climate change, or sea ice melt is certainly the polar bear. Who woulda thunk, then, that the walrus would turn out to be the most headache-inducing megafauna for Shell as the global oil company tries to drill in the melting Arctic this summer. Yesterday marked a major development in the ongoing battle royale between Shell, the Obama administration, federal regulators, and environmentalists.  The quick and dirty? As part of... 

Last month, James Blakely joined 12 other Greenpeace USA activists to courageously challenge Shell and its Arctic drilling plans. Greenpeace USA shares his story here: June 11, 2015 It’s a beautiful, clear June day near my childhood home in Graham, Washington, and I am looking out across a grassy horse pasture towards the majestic Mt. Rainier. The mountain is looking less formidable these days as its glaciers recede and its snow pack melts earlier every season, exposing grey rock. I can’t quite... 

We all waste food, some do it more, while some do it less. But the fact is that we all do it. Many times what happens is that we just throw out the waste food into the dustbin and let them rot. If instead we compost them, they can come out as a great reason to support the environment. In fact, composting food waste is a great idea, but while doing so, we need to take care of the type of food. There are some food items that can be or cannot be composted. The compostable ones are vegetables, coffee... 

In the politics of climate change, it doesn’t get much bigger than this. The world’s biggest emitter last night announced how it intends to reduce its carbon emission beyond 2020.  China has joined 41 other nations to unveil its ‘Intended Nationally Determined Contribution’, or INDC in UN jargon. These are documents that every country attending this year’s climate summit in Paris must submit. They are long and tedious, but we did the hard work for you. Here are three simple takeaways. 1....

If we think of Eco Friendly Coffins, the actual fast imagined that will pertains to each of our brain will be passing away. Well, passing away might not be the great thing we would like to take into consideration; however the unfortunate the fact is that it must be inevitable. For that reason, it is better to recognize what direction to go while another person near to you passes away as an alternative to panicking while this event takes place. Coffins have been employed for centuries in the actual... 

The Arctic Ocean is currently the world’s most vulnerable ocean. But the hope is this will soon change. At a meeting held in Ostend, Belgium, last week, the OSPAR Convention agreed to adopt specific measures to protect its Arctic region, including a commitment to secure a marine protected area (MPA) in 2016. This means an unprecedented agreement on Arctic protection, which could result in safeguarding the first piece of a future sanctuary in the High Arctic in just a few months’ time. In...

Air pollution. Nobody can escape it. Young or old, rich or poor, everyone is affected by the fine particulate matter hanging over many cities across China. These images by celebrated photographer, Lu Guang, take you on a visual journey through China’s industrial heartland, where the environment and the health of the people who depend on it are being affected. It’s grim.   When I went to Jiangsu province I was shocked. These photos show how thick the air is, but you can’t appreciate the odor...
