Plastic in the Sea’s….. Shocking http://www.greenisp.net/blog/plastic-in-the-seas-shocking http://www.greenisp.net/blog/plastic-in-the-seas-shocking#respond Tue, 05 Dec 2017 16:18:23 +0000 http://www.greenisp.net/blog/?p=555 If this is not proof that Humans are causing Environmental problems including this one, species collapse and probably Climate Change then i don’t know what else will Wake Us Up?

It is estimated that between four and 12m metric tonnes of plastic makes its way into the ocean each year. This figure is only likely to rise, and a 2016 report predicted that by 2050 the amount of plastic in the sea will outweigh the amount of fish.

On the issue of Nuclear Power and Weapons http://www.greenisp.net/blog/on-the-issue-of-nuclear-power-and-weapons Fri, 05 Aug 2016 15:56:07 +0000 http://www.greenisp.net/blog/?p=542 A couple of things to ponder on, think about?

Hinkley Point Nuclear power station estimated cost – £37 Billion

Trident Nuclear deterrent estimated cost – £200 Billion

(oh, BTW, I thought we had to spend less and save, cut back, have austerity etc, funny how they can come up with the cash when it suits UK, US, French and Chinese corporate interest….

OR

Equivalent Power Output in Renewables of Hinkley point – £160 Billion

Conventional Navy , Army , Air-force, – More than Double Spending rather that cutting back.

Renewable power has grown in the UK to the point where more electricity was generated from biomass, wind, hydro and solar power in 2015 than nuclear power stations.
But it is unlikely the Intergenerational Foundation’s report will shift minds in government, which has cut subsidies for both solar and wind power while pressing ahead with the Hinkley project.

Oh, and there’s the other point of public opinion… the 2016 Trident rally was Britain’s biggest anti-nuclear march in a generation. Like the Anti war Iraq march before that…. Who’s Listening??

Is Canada’s Great Bear Rainforest Saved? Looks like it…. http://www.greenisp.net/blog/is-canadas-great-bear-rainforest-saved-looks-like-it Tue, 02 Feb 2016 13:13:19 +0000 http://www.greenisp.net/blog/?p=528 Indigenous tribes, logging firms and environmental groups in Canada have struck a deal to protect one of the world’s largest tracts of temperate Rainforest.

The Great Bear Rainforest on the Pacific coast of British Columbia is home to many animals and ancient trees.

Importantly, Logging will be banned across a huge area of the forest.

Environmental campaigners say it is a model for resolving similar land-use disputes around the world.

The forest is inhabited by the spirit bear, a rare sub-species of the black bear with white fur, and is also home to 26 aboriginal groups, known as First Nations.

Its enormous habitat covers 32,000 sq km (12,000 sq miles) on the Pacific coast of Canada, helping purify both air and water, and is an unspoiled home to grizzly bears, wolves and cougars.

Let us hope this deal paves the way to Stop any future plans for oil or gas exploration or any pipelines throgh the region?

“Our leaders understand our wellbeing is connected to the wellbeing of our lands and waters,” said Chief Marilyn Slett, president of Coastal First Nations.

“If we use our knowledge and our wisdom to look after our lands and waters and communities, they will look after us into the future.”

The announcement comes nearly two years after a landmark Supreme Court decision that granted title to a vast swath of British Columbia’s interior to the Tsilhqot’in First Nations, who had gone to court to stop logging in their traditional lands.

That decision has bolstered First Nations across the province, who now have a legal precedent for fighting development on their territories.

Tesla Motors has unveiled batteries that power homes http://www.greenisp.net/blog/tesla-motors-has-unveiled-batteries-that-power-homes Fri, 01 May 2015 10:32:31 +0000 http://www.greenisp.net/blog/?p=512 US electric car maker Tesla Motors has unveiled batteries that power homes and businesses as it attempts to expand beyond its electric vehicle ventures.

CEO Elon Musk announced the firm will build batteries that store solar energy and serve as a back-up system for consumers during blackouts, jsut as standard lead acid solar batteries have done for years.

The device/s will allow consumers to get off a power grid or bring energy to remote areas that are not on a grid, connect to each-other over the internet to create Local Smart Grid systems, first shipping to Germany outside the US in 2016.

“Our goal is to fundamentally change the way the world uses energy,” Musk told a press conference at the Tesla Design Center on Thursday night. “It sounds crazy, but we want to change the entire energy infrastructure of the world to zero carbon.”

A great vision, however, as positive as this is I just wonder where all the rare earth metals etc are going to come from???

Bradley Manning nominated for 2013 Nobel Prize sentenced to 25 years in Jail?? Odd?? http://www.greenisp.net/blog/bradley-manning-nominated-for-2013-nobel-prize-sentenced-to-25-years-in-jail-odd Wed, 21 Aug 2013 17:50:05 +0000 http://www.greenisp.net/blog/?p=414 Does the name Nelson Mandela or others come to mind?

On one hand a hero, not easy to get a nomination for the Nobel prize, on the other a 25 year Jail sentence, has the world of high society and politics given in to a weird double standard? seems that way?
