Yup. This actually happened.

For four days last month, Scottish wind farms generated more electricity than all of Scotland used. On Christmas Eve, the total amount of wind energy produced was also the highest ever, with more than 74,000 MWh sent to the National Grid.

Campaigning works.

Obama has just written his second cheque for $500 million to the Green Climate fund after organisations such as Corporate Accountability International called on him to do more for the fund.

The fund was a key aspect of the Paris agreement signed in 2015, which aims to keep global warming “well below” 2C and aspires to keep warming to 1.5C.

Please urgently sign the petition demanding they clean up their act: [ Link ]

Forest fires which are exacerbated by destruction for palm oil threaten the lives of hundreds of thousands of people in South East Asia. The destruction also puts orangutans closer to the brink of extinction.
