Global Nations must Triple Action to Avoid Climate Change

The United Nations issued a wake-up call to world leaders for urgent climate action to be taken before its too late. If the emissions gap is not closed by 2030, it is extremely unlikely that the 2 C temperature goal can still be reached. Despite national pledges to curb planet-warming emissions, the current pace of government action is “insufficient” to limit global warming to well below 2 C…

Modern day life, aviation and other forms of industrial pollution have resulted in the destruction of 60% of the global animal populations over the last 50 years, according to scientists. The huge loss of the planet’s wildlife is a tragedy in itself but also threatens the survival of civilization, say the world’s leading scientists. “We are sleepwalking towards the edge of a cliff”  The emergency that now threatens our civilization has ran out of control, with corporate profit system…

Recycling Plastic was Never really Possible

Head to the kitchen, open your fridge and cupboards, and take out everything that’s made of plastic. The list goes like this – and that’s just one room!

Nederlandse Toeristen Overspoelen en Bezetten Stranden op Curacao

Volgens onlangs vrijgegeven cijfers van het CTB komt meer dan de helft van alle toeristenb overnachtigingen op Curacao voor rekening van een bezoeker uit Nederland. Ondanks dit bijzonder aanzienlijk belang blijft de staatskas leeg, en zal de belasting dienst andere maatregelen moeten treffen met betrekking tot dit tegenstrijdige fenomeen. Dit jaar kondigde de PAR dictatuur nog meer eenzijdige maatregelen aan, wat de gemeenschap verder naar de…

Brazilian President wants to Chop Down Amazon Rainforest

Brazil’s recently CIA backed elected president, Jair Bolsonaro, represents what many consider to be the far-right ideologies of nationalism, corporatism, and indifference toward the environment, culture and the poor.

Bolsonaro has been quoted as saying that ‘minorities will have to adapt or simply disappear.’ This is…
